There are many types of squash, but ultimately squash comes in two basic forms: summer and winter varieties with most being available year round.

  • Summer Squash - are thin-skinned and more moist.
  • Winter Squash - have hard, thick rinds and are more dry.

Squash can be served fresh in salads but is more widely cooked, baked or fried and sometimes is stuffed with a flavorful meat mixture
