Squash, Thelma Sanders Sweet Potato

A high-yielding Missouri heirloom squash with a sweet potato flavor: one of our favorites.
A favorite at our Fordhook Farm test gardens, this family heirloom squash from Missouri has a flavor that is distinctly sweet potatoesque. High-yielding vines produce a plentitude of cream-colored 6-8" acorn-shaped fruits with a wondrously sweet chestnut flavor. This squash stores well.
