Organic Delicata Squash Seeds
Organic Delicata Squash
The Delicata, sometimes known as Bohemian squash, was originally introduced to the U.S. by Peter Henderson and Co. back in 1894. This darling winter squash has a beautiful yellow-white skin with dark green stripes containing wonderful, sweet, delicate, light yellow-orange flesh, perhaps a bit reminiscent of sweet potato. Small 7" - 9" fruits grow on prolific short vines.
Great baked, roasted or stuffed and sprinkled with fresh herbs!
