Is it edible??

Cynthia asked me,

“is it edible?”

I assumed she was kidding with me.

So I kidded her back.

“Sure it’s edible, everything’s edible. You just might not feel so well afterwards.”

Only after I was asked two more times, and someone else said, “Is this ornamental?”, did I finally understand what Cynthia was asking me. It wasn’t what I assumed. You do know what they say about assumptions, right?

Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds has this to say: “One of the sweetest of all! The small flattened ribbed 1 lb. fruit has a white skin with green stripes. The sweet, tender orange flesh makes this variety the favorite of many.”

Sweet Dumpling is considered a single serving winter squash, due to its very manageable size. In the next three weeks you’ll also receive acorn, buttercup, spaghetti (limited), and turk’s turban (very limited) winter squashes.
