As the name implies, Cupcake Squash makes your garden look like it has been turned into Mother Nature’s bakery. This cupcake-shaped squash has a rich, savory-sweet flavor. The skin is soft, making it an excellent choice for recipes that call for slicing, sautéing, roasting, or grilling squash. Be sure to leave lots of space when planting this variety, as it can sprawl for up to 5 feet and produce dozens of fruits.
Bonnie Plants grows this Foodie Fresh variety, grown from Burpee-exclusive seed, in a limited number of regions.
