Deep orange fleshy squash that is perfect for baking with a little butter and brown sugar on top.
Classified as a winter squash but technically in the same species as most summer squashes (i.e.: zucchini), Acorn Squash are named so for their shape. Typically a dark green rind gives way to a rich orange flesh that is characteristically creamy and very flavourful when baked. The seeds are also edible, especially when roasted.
