General Information: Autumn Frost produces uniquely ribbed, round fruit that ripens to dark tan with a frosted overlay. Fruit is similar in taste to a butternut squash, with superior quality, rich flavor and a shelf life of up to 4 months after maturity, allowing for a supply of high-quality fruit throughout the Winter season. Fruit can be prepared like a winter squash: cut lengthwise, scoop seeds out and roast, then scoop out the tender flesh. Try cutting the top 2 in./5 cm off, scooping out seeds and roasting whole, making it perfect for stuffing. Best grown in-ground.
