Delicata squash (Cucurbita pepo)
Appreciated by gardeners, who have been growing it for a long time, it was introduced to the United States around 1894 by the seed company Peter Henderson. It produces about ten fruits of 0.5 to 1 kg per plant. These are ivory or yellow streaked with green. Its flesh is very sweet with a flavor reminiscent of chestnuts. Interestingly, it is one of the only winter squash whose flesh is edible when cooked. Due to its small size, it is ideal for stuffing.;Small squashes can be stored for about 3 to 4 months.
The vast majority of our seeds are produced on our farm. However, if the cultivation of a variety fails or if it is out of stock, we source from other seed companies to ensure an interesting selection. This is the case for this variety.
