BANANA SQUASH

Banana squash come in orange, pink and even blue. The 'Pink Mammoth Jumbo' variety can grow to 4 feet long and 12 inches in diameter and weigh over 70 pounds.

Banana squash comes in three varieties: blue, orange, and pink. Among the three varieties, the pink banana is the most common in the United States. It is grown commercially in Florida. This large, thick-skinned cylindrical squash averages 20 inches long and weighs around 12 pounds. It is so large that it is usually sold in chunks instead of whole. Its creamy textured orange flesh offers a fruity and buttery delight to your palate. Although both baking and steaming are great ways to prepare this tasty squash, steaming produces a slightly sweeter, yet mild flavor.
