In technical terms, Delicata squash is classed as summer squash, because it is hard-fleshed and harvested late in the year but has summer squash skin, which is soft enough to remove easily with a vegetable peeler. Also called “sweet potato squash” for its brown sugar flavor. Delicata tastes like a cross between fresh sweet corn and pumpkin pie.
Like all hard squash, delicata is high in vitamin C and beta-carotene, moderately low in calories and very versatile.
