What is Acorn Squash?

Acorn squash is a small, ribbed squash, shaped like an acorn. They are usually blackish-green or yellow. Acorn squashes will keep for about a month when stored cool.

Acorn Squash Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Acorn Squash Cooking Tip
