Delicata Squash
Cucurbita pepo 'Delicata'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
First introduced to the European settlers by Indigenous peoples, this beautiful squash has become a favourite in home gardens. Known for its creamy texture and nutty sweet potato flavour, it is excellent served baked, sauteed, steamed or stuffed. The seeds can be roasted and eaten also. The cylindrical-oblong fruits are a beautiful cream-yellow colour with dark green stripes and, at about 20cm/8" long and 10cm/4" in diameter, they are just shy of a kilo (2 lbs) in weight when ready to harvest. Unlike most other winter squashes that need to be cured for a few weeks before use, this squash is ready right from the garden. Vines are short so this variety can be squeezed into small city gardens. 90-100 days.
