Bred for organics. This heart-shaped 7 to 9 pound green squash with orange to pink stripes has deep-orange-colored flesh and great flavor. Hard-shelled and long-storing. Long vines. Bred by Relentless, who crossed Green Delicious and Gold Delicious, then stabilized by selecting several years for the “sublime flavor, deep-orange-colored flesh, and iridescent striping—both nutrition and beauty.”
