Bush | 95 days to harvest| Cucurbita pepo
Each lusciously sweet acorn squash is filled with delectably hulless confectionary-style seeds, packed with protein & fondly called pepitas. The best of both worlds! Intersectionality, indeed.
Rather than a sprawling vine, Intersectionality is early maturing on a compact bush thriving in gardens and raised beds as well as large containers with plenty of fertility. Similar to Delicata, acorns are delicious right off the vine in September, unlike most winter squash requiring curing to draw out their depth of flavor. Enjoyed before the New Year, even the skin is edible!
In a world needing us to see our interdependence as nourishing, may Intersectionality teach us the delicious possibilities of growing ourselves as well as our gardens.
