Winter Squash

Winter squash are picked in the autumn and stored until spring. Some popular varieties are acorn, butternut, and spaghetti.

To select, the tastiest winter squashes will be solid and heavy with stems that are full, firm, and have a corky feel. The skin of the squash should be deeply colored with a matte finish. Avoid squash with cracks, soft spots, and moldy areas.
