About delicata squash
Delicata squash is known by many names, including sweet potato squash, Bohemian squash, and peanut squash. This winter squash has a thin, edible skin that's softer and easier to eat than the skin of some other squash varieties. Although you have to carve out the center of most types of squash, delicata squash can be eaten whole, making the preparation process easier than ever.
Delicata squash is yellow with orange or green stripes. It has an oblong shape and usually measures about 3 inches wide and 6 inches long. A delicata squash typically weighs between 1 and 2 pounds. The flesh of delicata squash is similar to butternut squash in flavor and color. It is also comparable to sweet potatoes.
Delicata squash is typically harvested in the fall. It has a shorter shelf life than other winter squash varieties, so you should keep this in mind when you're purchasing it. You can only store delicata squash for about three months in a cool, dry pantry. This squash tastes best when eaten within about 10 days of purchase. You should not refrigerate this squash whole. Once delicata squash is open, you can store it in the fridge for three or four days or keep it in the freezer for up to three months.
