Squashes come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Some common varieties include zucchini, pumpkin, acorn, spaghetti, butternut and delicata. While all squashes share some basic similarities, each type has its own unique flavor. For example, zucchini is typically mild and sweet, while pumpkin is rich and slightly earthy.
In terms of color, squashes can range from deep green to vibrant orange. The skin of a squash is also edible, though it can be tough and bitter in some cases. Whether roasted, baked, or pureed, squashes make a delicious and healthy addition to any meal.
