An acorn type winter squash yielding a surprisingly good number of fruit on bushy plants.
An acorn type winter squash yielding a surprisingly good number of fruit on bushy plants suitable for tight spaces. The green-skinned fruit are a small, useful size – they average between 600 to 700 g each and measure around 11cm in diameter.
The light yellow flesh is a pleasure to eat, and it can be described as “sweet, smooth and moist”. A great squash to cut in half and roast for single servings.

a) Fruit should be harvested when they are mature, which is sometime in the autumn. Fortunately, maturity of Honey Bear is easily determined: the fruit develop a yellow spot where they touch the ground.
