Q. in Acorn squash, what does a solid yellow color mean. I usually look for the green ones with a yellow spot on the side. I found completely yellow ones at the store today. At they O.K.?
A. Acorn squash can vary in color depending on the variety grown. Based on the seed planted, it may produce yellow, dark green, tan or orange acorn squash. Make sure to choose squash that is heavy for its size and is dull in appearance. Avoid squash that has soft spots or cracks. You can also talk with your local grocer about the change in product.
