Squisito Spaghetti Squash - Annapolis Seeds
Squisito Spaghetti Squash (out of stock)

Unique spaghetti squash, with both spaghetti and delicata ancestry. The strings have an extra rich sweet flavour, owing to their delicata background. They come in a variety of rind colours; some are striped while others are yellow. All were delicious! I'd say it's more of landrace than a fully stable variety, so expect variation. 15 seeds

Sweet Dumpling Squash - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Sweet Dumpling Squash
Price: $3.50

(C. pepo) One of my personal favourites. Small, flattened squash (imagine a cross between delicata and acorn) produced very heavily on short vines. The sweet dry flesh reminds me of roasted chestnuts. A single squash is the perfect size for one person; I like to simply halve them and bake them. The skin is tender enough to eat too. 20 seeds
