Delicata squash is a creamy-yellowish color with green, sometimes orange, vertical stripes. These squash are generally 5-6 inches in length and 2-3 inches in diameter. The delicata has firm, fine-grained, yellow to orange flesh that is sweet, rich, and moist, much like a sweet potato.
Delicata squash is available in the fall and winter.
Delicata squash, botanically classified as Cucurbita pepo, is an heirloom variety also known as bohemian squash. The Delicata squash was at one time popular but failed to withhold that popularity due to its vulnerability to disease and yield issues. Demand for the Delicata squash was revived in the late 1990's, catapulting Cornell University to develop the higher yield and disease resistant variety, the Cornell Bush Delicata.
