table queen acorn squash deserves her crown

By: on 27 May 2016
Transplanted late at 400 metres above sea level in Tasmania. Unfed, unwatered through a hot, dry summer. Still produced well. Delicious when halved, seeded and roasted with salt, pepper and a knob of butter. Thin, nutty skin equally delicious, yet the skin seems sturdy enough that the fruit will keep well over winter. Thanks Lost Seed. Will keep you posted.
