Safari squash is a glossy, uniformly cylindrical shape fruit with little to no taper from its stem to blossom end. It can be harvested when it is at its baby stage or when more mature at up to six to eight inches long. The exterior skin of the Safari squash is vibrant to dark green with white stripes that set it apart from regular zucchini. Its flesh is creamy white in color with a spongy yet firm texture and faint traces of edible seeds. It offers a sweet summer squash flavor with nuances of black peppercorn and nutty undertones.
Safari Squash is available in the summer months.
