Acorn squash is a type of winter squash that belongs to the gourd (cucurbit) plant family. Gourds are typically large, with hard skin and fleshy center. Other plants that are a part of this family include melons, cucumbers and pumpkins.

It has an acorn like shape, with green longitudinal ridges and an orange/ yellow center. The taste of the flesh is slightly nutty and sweet. When cooked, the flesh easily separates from the skin. The skin is edible but does have a tough texture and bitter taste even after cooking.

Here’s a video with tips on how to properly store and prepare your squash.
