Squash Winter, Galeux D' Eysines
95-100 days. Possibly our most beautiful heirloom squash. This flattened, round, 10-15 lb fruit has gorgeous, salmon/peach-colored skin covered with large warts! The deep orange flesh is flavorful, smooth and sweet, making it good for baking. It’s also popular among the French for making soup. This is one of the tastiest squash I have tried, and we are delighted to offer this French heirloom.
