Fall Squash Guide

Black Futsu Squash:

This is a Japanese heirloom squash that looks more like a pumpkin but fits more accurately into the squash description because of its use for savory meals. The skin on black futsu may look too bumpy to eat, but it is actually edible, tasty, and full of nutrients. The bumps on it actually create a perfect space for oil and herbs to settle in and add flavor. With a sweet and nutty flavor profile, these are amazing for roasting in wedges.

Honeynut Squash:

These taste just like normal butternut squash but even sweeter! Because of their small shape, the taste and nutrients are also more densely packed in this vegetable. Butternut and honeynut are both perfect for soups and roasting, but the small one makes a very beautiful side dish as you can serve a whole roasted half to each person!

Delicata Squash:

An Italian winter squash that has a great taste like a sweet potato. The name refers to how the skin is so delicate that it’s great to eat too! Don’t peel these delicious squashes. Try roasting simply it in half-moon rings for a healthy take on fries.

Spaghetti Squash:

This is an amazingly nutritious & effective substitute for pasta! When cooked, the flesh becomes stringy and holds the same consistency as a bowl of spaghetti. With its mildly sweet flavor, this tastes awesome with a light sauce or your favorite pasta toppings.

Kabocha Squash:

This squash is known for being hearty and full of great flavor for soups, curry, to cube up and add to beans and stews. Because it is so dense, this squash retains its shape and takes on most of the flavor of whatever it is cooked with. Kabocha also has a lovely, bright orange color that lends itself well to fall plates.

Acorn Squash:

A very popular winter squash known for its sweet taste and hearty texture! These are great for stuffing with sweet or savory ingredients or simply roasting. This squash is also great because the skin is edible and nutritious, making for easier prep and varied texture in your meal.

Butternut Squash:

Roasted butternut squash tastes like a cross between sweet potato and pumpkin. It’s slightly sweet with a nutty squash taste, which pairs well with both sweet and savory flavors.

Autumn Frost Squash:

This ribbed, round fruit is similar in taste to a butternut squash, with superior quality, rich flavor and a shelf life of up to 4 months after maturity, so go ahead and stock up!
