Squash - Tahitian Melon

Squash - Tahitian Melon

Description

A large squash, 10-15# with thick, curved neck and large base or bulb, containing all the seeds.  The cooked flesh is thick, smooth, rich and sweet.  Good for soups and pies.

Applications/Techniques

The heirloom varieties are used in the same manner as the more traditional varieties-baked or roasted for use in salads, soups, appetizers and desserts-but are distinct in that they are only available for a few months and using these varieties represents an effort to preserve  and prevent them from disappearing from the marketplace altogether.
