Occasionally, when I'm in the garden center, I will buy a starter plant. It was tagged acorn squash. Now that the squash are growing, I believe it had an incorrect tag on it.
I'm hoping you will be able to tell me what I have growing in the garden.
Usually, I don't have the best of luck with squash. I always seem to loose the battle to squash bugs. But these vines have taken over one area of the garden.
The bloom has a ruffled edge...
And the bottom is shaped like this.
I couldn't resist cutting one, having no idea if it is ready to be eaten. The flesh inside is soft and moist with a nutty fragrance.
Do you know the name of this squash and how to prepare it?
