Turban squash is a member of the Curcurbita maxima genus. Also known as Turk’s Squash or American Turban.
Turban squash can range in color from mottled green, orange to yellow in color, often displaying all of these colors on a single squash. At its blossom end is a Turban-like cap, thus its name. This ornamental and edible, variety can measure ten to fifteen inches in diameter and is heavy for its size. Wrapped in a thin but hard shell, the fine-textured orange flesh can vary from mild to sweet. When cooked the flesh has a floury texture that lends itself well to soups.
Winter squash is an excellent source of vitamin A and offers a good source of vitamin C, calcium, fiber, and potassium, plus notable amounts of protein and carbohydrates. About 50 calories are in four ounces of baked squash.
Turban squash shines when baked, roasted, steamed, sautéed, and pureed.
