Squash Winter, Sucrine Du Berry
100 days. A famous old traditional variety from the heart of France. It has a sweet, musky fragrance and a delicious, sweet flesh that is used in jams, soups, and many French recipes. Small 3-5 lb. fruit is perfect for roasting and has deep orange flesh. Oblong, bell-shaped fruit is tannish-orange in color when mature. We are happy to introduce this flavorful variety to America.
