Autumn Frost produces uniquely ribbed, round fruit that ripens to dark tan with a frosted overlay. Fruit is similar in taste to a butternut squash, with superior quality, rich flavour and shelf life up to 4 months after maturity, allowing for supply of high-quality fruit throughout the Winter season. Fruit can be prepared like winter squash. Cut lengthwise, scoop out seeds and roast, then scoop out the tender flesh. Try cutting the top 2 in./5 cm off, scooping out seeds and roasting whole; perfect for stuffing. Cut 1/2 in./1 cm off the top and bottom of the squash, scoop out seeds, cut the remainder of the fruit into 1 to 2-in./3 to 5-cm rings, and grill on a low fire for a rich, smoky flavour. Vines are Powdery mildew resistant, allowing for excellent yield potential of high-quality fruit.
