Squash, Fordhook Acorn

A Burpee-bred classic introduced in 1890: great for eating fresh or for baking.
As it name suggests, this classic acorn squash was bred at Fordhook Farm in Doylestown, PA, under the expert eye of W. Atlee Burpee himself. Introduced in 1890, the squash's tan oblong fruits grow up to 2 lb. on vining plants. The flavorful fruits can be eaten fresh at around 56 days or left on the vine to mature and used for baking after 85 days.
