  • Calabaza squash has a round to pear-like shape. Its exterior skin is hardened, often lined with large vertical ridges. The firm, yellow to orange flesh surrounds a large, central seed cavity with stringy pulp and many small, flat, and hard cream-colored seeds. Calabaza squash, when cooked, is smooth, fine-textured, and has a mild, sweet, and nutty flavor similar to butternut or acorn squash. Calabaza squash is best suited for baking, steaming, roasting, grilling, braising, or sautéing.
