A winter squash, typically weighing 5 to 7 pounds, that is round in shape and grows with a very distinctive protruding ring around the flower end opposite the stem end. Dark green with narrow grey stripes, the thin outer skin surrounds a rich, sweet-flavored, somewhat nutty tasting orange flesh that is fine-grained, creamy textured and dense in consistency. This squash can be stuffed, baked or microwaved to be served in soups, casseroles, pumpkin pie or as a side dish. When stored in a cool dry area it can be kept for months if not opened. After being sliced, it should be wrapped in plastic, refrigerated and kept for only several days. Cooked squash can be kept for 1 or 2 days refrigerated or approximately 3 months when frozen.
