"Cornell's Bush Delicata"
AAS Vegetable Award Winner
If you have never eaten a Delicata squash, this is the one to grow to eat. The orange
flesh color indicates it is rich in Vitamin A. The sweet flesh is fine textured without
coarse strings. Butter and brown sugar are optional when eating 'Cornell's Bush Delicata'
squash because it is so sweet. The squash have a long shelf life, meaning you can enjoy
eating the squash into the winter months. About 100 days from sowing to harvest, the
tolerance to powdery mildew will increase overall yield. The compact habit requires less
garden space. The mature bush will send out 4 to 6 foot runners later in the season.
