Turban squash preferable winter choice

“I pretended like all the oranges rolling everywhere were her happy memories and they were looking for a new person to stick to so they didn’t get wasted.”   ― Stephen Kelma

As I foraged about my favorite supermarket in search of that perfect orange pumpkin I passed by one display of squash that caught my immediate attention. This colorful item is called a “Turban squash” and is related to the buttercup squash. It is also known as “Turk’s turban” or “French turban” and is a type of squash most often used as a winter squash. It is an heirloom, predating 1820.

  1. Did you try it yet? I love squash. My fave is acorn but it’s hard to get a good one. Butternut is usually good.


  2. I do like this photo, so warm and bright, it wouldn’t be out of place in a picture frame. What did you tell me the fruit was called, Gourd was it? I’d never heard of it or seen it until then. Thanks Gerry 😀


  3. Never saw this before! Much more unique than a pumpkin.


  4. love the pic. I’ve never seen those before so a double bonus
