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?
I forgot to add that I showed her a picture of a banana squash and she said that was not it!
My grandma-in-law grew summer before last what her relation in NC called roasters which they were huge pumpkin like squash.. They were orange and had a squash vs pumpkin taste.. Not sure if thats what you're lookin for.
I believe you are referring to a Candy Roaster or a Georgia Candy Roaster. I believe you can buy seeds through Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.
found them last night they are called a delicata squash! they do kinda look like a cuke. Thanks for the reply though.
