Detailed Product Info

When we found our our chocolatier pal Lagusta of Lagusta's Luscious uses this variety for one of her autumnal bonbons we knew we had to try it. The unique color and shape make it worth growing alone. The texture is not quite as dry and flaky as C. maxima varieties like buttercup or kabocha, however the dense, creamy texture is superior for baked goods and pie filling. Infact, in our pie taste test, it added a wonderful carmel flavor that was not present in other pies made with other squash varieties. This Southeast heirloom is aptly named: the sweet and dense flesh makes this keeper a real keeper! Stores up to five months.
