Winter Squash, Honey Boat Delicata (Organic)
$3.80 – $12.80
Cucurbita pepo. 90 days.
Very sweet and reliable winter squash. Sister variety to Sugar Loaf which is shorter and fatter. Honey Boat is long like a true delicata but with a copper skin instead of the typical yellow. Larger seed cavity makes this squash ideal for stuffing and making delicata “boats.” Certainly among the sweetest winter squash we have ever grown. We have found it to hold its sweetness longer into winter storage than regular delicata. Bred by Dr. James Baggett at Oregon State University.
Seed supplied by Alan Adesse in Junction City, Oregon.
