Green-striped cushaw, aka Tennessee Sweet Potato Cushaw squash
Though the green-striped cushaw is technically a winter squash, it also produces a spring harvest. Found throughout the American South, the 10-20 lb squash has a yellow, slightly sweet flesh that is often substituted for pumpkin in pie recipes. It has a moist, hardy nature that stands up well in sweltering summer heat. The Cushaw is a central figure to much of southwestern Native American cooking, and is also prevalent in traditional Louisiana Creole dishes. While the green-striped cushaw is not endangered per se, it tends to be grown in small batches, often for private use, and is not widely available in retail markets.

McMaine's Riverhaven Farm is a haven. We are on the Salt River in an area of Kentucky that was farmed by the settlers that came to Kentucky. We feel there were native Americans here, too, as we have found a few arrowheads and flint rocks that look like they have been shaped. (more...)
