Green Acorn Squash
Cookstown Greens grows green acorn squash in the winter months between November to February.
Green Acorn Squash is small to medium size and has a round-oval shape. The rind is deep green with orange patches when ripened and the yellow-orange flesh is spongy with a hollow center with pulp and seeds.
It is lower in starch than many other winter squash types.
Its flesh offers a mildly sweet and nutty flavour with a somewhat dry texture.
When cooked the skin is edible making the squash ideal halved, baked and used as a bowl stuffed with meats, cheese, grains, soups, or other vegetables. Cooked green acorn squash can be added to soups, stews, curries, risotto, and pasta.
