Squash Winter, Sweetnut

A delicious acorn squash filled with “naked” seeds, which are also known as pepitas! This variety is a perfect combination; the flesh is sweet and creamy, the cavity is full of seeds, which are free of the tough outer coating that makes pumpkin seeds harder to eat. You can toast the nutritious little pepitas or eat them raw. A multipurpose, nowaste crop that should be a staple in every garden and homestead!
