Zeppelin Delicata squash


Most squash is said to have originated here in North America / Turtle Island.  This variety is said to have popped up in the USA around 1891.  We love this squash.  Really easy to grow and such a delight to eat, we simply slice the thin skinned squash about 3/4″, drizzle with oil and some salt and bake.  Take them out and then eat!
