Vegetable Spaghetti Squash - 10 Heirloom Seeds
Spaghetti Squash is also called gold string melon, it is unique among winter squashes; when cooked, the flesh falls away from the shell in strands like spaghetti, and retains a tender, yet al dente, texture. Savory flavor that is delicious, and low calorie, with a simple bit of butter and salt. Each plant can yield 5 to 7 squash.
The pale yellow, oval fruits grow to 25cm (10") on long, productive vines. Spaghetti Squash keep well for meals right through winter. Boil or bake the whole fruits, and then cut lengthwise down the middle. It's then easy to fork out the fibrous interior that looks just like pasta. Enjoy it simply seasoned as is, or topped with your favorite pasta sauce.
