Winter Squash Sunshine F1

Description

RHS Award. 

Sunshine Winter Squash is a Kabocha type squash with a beautifully vibrant, bright red to orange skin. It has a deliciously sweet and nutty flavour to the flesh which makes it ideal for baking with its skin on. Sunshine is stringless when it is baked or steamed and the flesh can be sliced and eaten raw like a carrot stick for a tasty alternative in yours or your childrens lunch box!

 

Squash is a delicious vegetable when roasted and can also be used to make tasty soups.
