Acorn squash has characteristic inedible hard, thin skin and firm flesh. It is roughly ovoid in shape with thick ridges, five to eight inches long, four to five inches across, and has a defined point at the bottom. The flesh is sweeter than summer squash, with a nut-like flavor. It is shaped like a ribbed acorn, hence its nickname. The growing period is longer than summer squash, giving it plenty of time to soak up the sweetness of the sun.

The colorful skin isnít edible, only the bright orange pulp inside. The brilliant colors are delightful!
Turban squash is a good source of calcium, phosphorous and vitamin A. Turkís turban squash is considered so ornamental that people often donít eat it, using it as a harvest festival decoration, instead. Given itís shape and the fact that itís so much smaller than a pumpkin, itís fun to serve it whole (roasted) and filled with a thick autumn soup or a stuffing of your choice.
Cooking with Turks-Turban Squash: You can either prepare turban squash like butternut squash or scoop out the insides and use it as an edible bowl. Here are the two methods.
