Canada Crookneck Squash (Cucurbita moschata)
C. moschataVery popular in the last century, this winter squash has practically disappeared in favor of more standardized and high-performance varieties. No doubt her elongated shape and twisted neck made her undesirable in the age of industrial trade and transport. It is moreover to meet the new market criteria that we would have developed, from the Canada Crookneck, the Butternut variety. The Canada Crookneck is however delicious. She is listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste. Excellent in soup, it will be exquisite transformed into fries. It is so sweet that it can replace sweet potatoes in all your recipes.;In recent years, it has reappeared among small seed companies. At Terre Promise, we want to preserve it, cultivate it and share it for many years to come!
