Acorn Squash

Acorn squash is a small variety of winter squash named for its resemblance to a large acorn. Its flesh is sweet and pairs well with warming spices. Enjoy these favorite recipe picks that speak to its comforting texture and flavor.




A Trimester

Acorn squash takes less than three months to grow from seed to full maturity.


Once harvested, the squash is left to sit in the sun, rotated at intervals for even exposure. This hardens the skin to protect the flesh inside, a process known as curing.

Waste Not

The seeds, squash blossoms, and the young green top leaves are all edible.
