Winter Squash - Tahitian - Cucurbita moschata
Tender Annual Heirloom. It looks like a Butternut Winter Squash with a long neck, but the Tahitian keeps even longer, so you can cook with it for months into the winter. Can be eaten raw, and the unusually sweet flesh caramelizes when baked, with a string texture like Spaghetti Squash. Use this 8-30 lb. squash as a vitamin-filled ingredient in soups, muffins, ravioli filling, quick breads, and cakes.
Did You Know? Tahitian islanders developed this squash from Central American seeds.
