Lakota Squash Seed
Lakota squash is a unique and hardy winter squash. Its name originates from the Lakota tribe of the Sioux Indians who originally grew this colorful variety of squash. Its distinct pear shape with red, orange, and green streaks of color make it easy to identify. Grow it for a fun fall decorative piece or enjoy it with a meal. The delicious flesh of the Lakota squash is fine-grained and has a sweet, nutty flavor, great for savory or sweet preparation. We love to sweeten the flesh with a bit of maple syrup or include it in pumpkin pie. It also makes for a rich hearty soup! You will know it’s ready to harvest when the outer shell hardens and resists puncture and the color deepens.
