The Yellow eight ball squash is available in the summer months.
The Yellow eight ball squash is botanically classified as Cucurbita pepo. It is a hybrid summer squash variety with an almost perfectly round shape, hence the name. This bright yellow skinned cultivar is sometimes called a “one ball” squash due to their similarity to the one ball in billiards. With ideal growing conditions the green "star" bordering the stem of the squash will become more pronounced.
The Yellow eight ball squash is similar in color and taste to the oblong, yellow straight neck squash. It has a mild creamy white flesh and a bright yellow skin that is tender and sweet. They generally range in size from one to four inches in diameter. The smaller sizes have the sweetest and most flavorful flesh, while the larger sizes are firmer, but excellent for stuffing. Squash that are larger than four inches have a tendency to develop a woody texture and hard unpalatable seeds.
The Yellow eight ball squash can be roasted whole or scooped out and stuffed with a variety of fillings. The flavor pairs well with corn, sausage, tomato, pasta, herbs and cheeses. They are excellent sliced in to perfect circles for squash parmesan or for simple frying or sautéing. Mix with the green or white variants of the eight ball squash for a unique presentation. Alternate slices for an attractive zucchini tart.
