Squash - Tahitian Melon
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.
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.
