description for "Winter Squash and Pumpkins: Cucurbita pepo 'Sweet Dumpling'"

Eye catching color is apparent on 'Sweet Dumpling' winter squash. This productive variety features gorgeous cream colored, ribbed fruit with green stripes, which fade to orange at maturity. Beneath this beautiful skin lies sweet tasting golden colored flesh that is ideal for baking, soups, stuffed or for Fall decorating. Maturity in 105 days. Edited by S. Derr
