Detailed Product Info

This small oblong squash was introduced in 1894 by the Peter Henderson Company of New York. Although a very popular home garden variety, the delicata's delicate nature and sweet flavor were almost lost because it was considered commercially unfeasible to grow. Its thin skin made it difficult to ship and its lower yields did not make the grade for mono-crop agriculture. Due to the efforts of Cornell University agronomists and interest from well-known chefs, delicata has made a comeback. Grow this compact bush at home and experience this delicacy for yourself.
