Winter squashes are different than summer squashes because they are harvested and eaten during what is called a mature fruit stage (you read that right! They are actually a FRUIT!). This is when the rind is tough. And then, although  it might seem obvious,  the squash can then be stored to be eaten during – you guessed it - winter!

Winter squashes includes squashes like banana squash, acorn squash, kabocha squash, pumpkin squash, and our personal favorite - butternut squash! Butternut squash grows on a vine and has a nutty flavor similar to pumpkin. When butternut squash is ripe it turns from a tan, yellowish color to a bright orange.

And even though butternut squash is technically a fruit, it is mostly used like a vegetable by roasting it or sautéing it or even pureeing it into a creamy soup.
