Butternut- Easily found in supermarkets. Beige colored and shaped like a vase. This is a more watery squash and tastes somewhat similar to sweet potatoes. It has a bulbous end and pale, creamy skin, with a choice, fine textured, deep-orange flesh with sweet, nutty flavor. It weighs from 2 to 5 pounds. Tip: The orangey the color, the riper, drier and sweeter the squash.
