Honeynut Squash


Honeynut squash is a relatively new variety of squash that was specially bred for better flavor. It looks like a darker, miniature version of butternut squash and has deep orange flesh. Its flavor is sweeter and richer than butternut, and even though it’s a winter squash, the skin is thin enough that it doesn’t need to be peeled and can be eaten. It is most often roasted, but can also be stuffed or made into soup.

Introduced in 2017, honeynut squash was created by a Cornell University plant breeding and genetics professor and a chef and restaurant owner. Although most vegetables are bred for high yield rather than taste, these two men sought out to make a squash with rich flavor. Only problem is that quantity is limited to roughly two squash per plant!
