Speckled Squash

Speckled Squash

This variety of winter squash looks like the Cinderella pumpkin carriage.  I just love the colors: peachy-pumpkin orange, hunter green and smoky grey-green. 

The taste is very sweet and the flesh is meaty and dry.  I prefer the dry varieties of winter squash and in my opinion the watery varieties have a slimy texture and somewhat of a bitter taste (this type is not bitter).

Please pay no attention to the weeds!  The squash part of the garden got away from me this year.
