Lebanese Squash is a lovely summer squash I like far more than Zucchini. It’s firm, with a sweet, nutty flavor. It also goes by, Mid-East or Cousa squashes. Lebanese types are bulbous-shaped light green to cream colored, with white speckles.
This is a great squash for sauteing, grilling, stuffing and baking, used in any recipe for eggplant or added to soups an stews. It holds up better then the other summer quashes. and is often used in Middle Easter cooking.
The plant grows in vines on the grown, and fruit matures at 50 days.
Open-pollinated. Also called Mid-East or Cousa squashes, Lebanese types are bulbous-shaped light green with white speckles. Robust crawly bushes are amazing croppers; yielded 15 fruits per plant in our trial plot. Pick fruits when they are young and tender or allow them to fatten for stuffing. If you grow it, be gentle harvesting and handling. It bruises and scratches easily.
