Pretty and tasty Festival acorn squash are creamy colored with decorative green and orange stripes and each weighs just 1-2 pounds, perfect for individual servings. They grow on compact, semi-bush vines, saving garden space. These powerhouse plants bear heavily, producing literally dozens of squashes that keep their flavor and quality for 3 months after harvest. Simply cut in half, remove seeds, and oven roast with a little butter and (our favorite) a spoonful of maple syrup. Yum!
