Handling Tip
  • Indian long squash is firm and heavy for its size.
  • The skin is glossy with no signs of bruises or decay.
  • The smaller size is generally tender and sweeter.
  • Indian long squash should be stored at 45°F - 50°F (7°C - 10°C) with a relative humidity of eighty-five to ninety-five percent and no mist.
  • The typical shelf life is one to two weeks. Long-term storage leads to dull rind, dried or discolored stem end.
