Q. What are the health benefits and nutritional vaue of Squash? i need to ask this because i am of sure of the data in the internet. Your response will highly be appreciated. The data will be used for our school research. :)


A. Depending on the type of squash, the nutritional value will be different. There are two major types of squash: winter and summer. Most winter squashes will have similar nutrients to each other as will summer squash varieties to each other. Check out our Fruit and Vegetable Database to find the type of squash and variety of squash for use in your project as well as information about the squash.
