Delicata squash holding up (storing) great

8 years ago

I tried delicate squash for the first time this year, and I like them very much. It is said that you should eat them as soon as possible, as they are supposed to be thin skinned, and the first winter-type squash to go bad. I picked mine starting around Labor Day, and they're all still pristine. They even last pretty well after you cut them, as long as you cover the cut surface tightly. Since I live alone, I can only eat about three slices at a time, and I'll end up composting at least half my harvest from this season.

All in all, a great crop if you're not really a ;fan of winter squash, but you want to try something that will store for a while, if not all winter.
