Winter Squash refers to those in the genus maxima including: acorn squash, banana squash, buttercup, hubbard squash and turban squash.
Heirloom winter squash comes in shapes round and elongated, scalloped and pear-shaped with flesh that ranges from golden-yellow to brilliant orange. Most winter heirloom squashes are vine-type plants whose fruits are harvested when fully mature. They take longer to mature than summer squash (3 months or more) and are best harvested once the cool weather of fall sets in. Winter Squash can be stored for months in a cool basement-hence the name "winter" squash.
