Here is the Table Queen Acorn Squash, Cucurbita pepo. This is a dark green winter squash with a yellow flesh inside with excellent flavor. It is one of the most sought after squash next to Zucchini squash. The fruits get to around 6 to 8 inches with a dark green skin sometime with over tones of orange and yellow with spots when left on the vine for to long. They are best harvested young before the Skins harden and seeds enlarge as the squash matures but you can harvest them even in their later stages and make pies and soups with it! They do have a long shelf life and the seeds are great roasted. Open pollinated 70 to 90 days.
