Waltham (left) and bush (right) types. Both have very small seed cavities and deep orange delicious flesh. Great for soups or eating on its own.
One of the most popular, long-keeping squash we grow. Its flavor improves in storage.
Looks like a funky-colored acorn, but is tastier and better keeping.
ORANGE DAWN, SUNSHINE, OR EASTERN RISE
All three of these varieties are Kabocha types. This is our new favorite winter squash. The dry, sweet flesh is a great substitute for sweet potato.
A new variety for us this year (2011). This large-fruited buttercup type is very similar in taste to kabocha; dry and sweet.
Another new variety for us this year (2011). The flesh is sweet and similar to Delicata. The smaller size makes it appropriate when you want a single serving. We found the plants to be very prolific.
SMALL WONDER SPAGHETTI SQUASH
A more basket-friendly version of the giant vegetable spaghetti squash we have grown in the past. Our favorite source for wheat-free pasta. We use it for the Oriental Noodle Salad recipe (elsewhere on the web site).
TABLE KING ACORN
Everybody’s favorite Thanksgiving squash.
Who knew the plants would sometimes throw an odd colored fruit?
Perfect for pies or even bulking up other squash varieties. We like to make a pumpkin curry, too. These will be in your Thanksgiving and Winter Solstice baskets.
If you picked up one of these heirloom squashes at our pumpkin pick-up weekend, let us know what you think of its flavor.
