Oval-shaped with black random markings on its firm skin, the light green Kuta squash offers a rather insipid non-descript flavor. This squash can grow several inches in length.
Kuta squash is typically available during summer.
A member of the cucurbitaceae family, this large group includes winter squash, summer squash, edible gourds, and pumpkins. No other vegetable exhibits the same culinary versatility and diversity.
All squashes provide vitamin A and vitamin C, some of the B vitamins and are a good source of fiber. Approximately 100 calories are in one cup of cooked squash.
Steam, bake, boil, sauté, microwave or fry. Add to stir-fries, casseroles, vegetable medleys, soups and stews for texture. To store, refrigerate in a plastic bag. Use promptly for optimum quality.
Vigorous and prolific, Kuta may be harvested as a summer squash or be allowed to mature into a winter squash when it becomes thick-skinned and dark.
