- Known as one of the tastiest winter squashes though it has a storage potential of only a month or so.
Non-GMO Delicata Winter squash is ready in 100 days. This is one of the tastier winter vine squashes with creamy flesh tastes like sweet potatoes. This is where the other name, 'Sweet Potato Squash" originates. Elongated fruit is 7 to 10 inches long, pale cream with green stripes and dots. Thinner skin than some other winter squashes reduces the storage potential to about a month, but oh, what flavor!
