SQUASH – Delicata

(20 seeds)

$3.95

Pretty fruits. Awesome flavour.

If you're someone who likes collecting recipes, you may have seen Delicata Squash mentioned before. It has been likened to sweet potato, while others say it is better than butternut, but is it as delicate as its name suggests? The plant certainly isn't! In fact, it is so vigorous, that the vines will need plenty of room. Nevertheless, it is well worth devoting some space to these beauties, especially if you enjoy the awesome flavour you get from heirloom vegetables.
