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.

Dela Rose Farm

  North Benton, OH

Dela Rose Farm is a very small part of a 112 year old farm that was sold into small parts. In March of 2009, I found this old farm house and old barns with 4.3 acres. I fell for it instantly. It was not used for years, but it had potential. I wanted to buy it, but I was told it was sold. So I started looking again. (more...)
