My mother in law has asked me to try to figure out a squash that her mother grew when she was a child. She called them roasters. They were colored like an acorn squash but were shaped like a big cucumber. Any ideas?
Zucchini?,,,,Are they winter or summer squash?
Winter squash lol guess I should have mentioned that! She said that they tasted a lot like a butternut.
to me she had the name already !! :) Sounds like one of the old "heirloom" squash ...Candy roasters , maybe the North Carolina Candy roaster variety... another from North Georgia and a melon type..
A Fred Squash, leastways that be what it do sound like.
lol they ended up being a delicata squash! thanks for the response and thank you danny jomo for the answer!
