Winter Squash Facts and Video Recipe

Split Spaghetti Squash

Winter squash is an October Foods of the Month, and we love all of the varieties and versatility of this great food!

Here are some interesting facts about winter squash:

  • Have a hard shell and thus not eaten (unlike their sister “summer squash” varieties)
  • Come in a variety of shapes and sizes with flesh that ranges in color from golden-yellow to brilliant orange
  • Varieties include pumpkins, acorn, butternut, hubbard, turban and “spaghetti” squash
  • Most grow on a vine and are picked when fully mature.
  • Take longer to mature than summer squash (about 3 months or more) and are best harvested once the cool weather of fall sets in
  • Can be stored for months in a cool place, hence the name “winter” squash
