(100 days) One of the most popular heirloom squash, Delicata is still today one of the finest winter squashes you can grow. Produces cream-colored loaf-shaped fruit with dark green longitudinal stripes and flecks. The 7-9 inch long, 4 inch wide fruit have fine-textured, light orange flesh that is simply delicious. Slice lengthwise and bake. Makes a savory treat when stuffed with rice, topped with cheese and broiled. A very good keeper.
