Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Winter Squash, part deux

Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Winter Squash, part deux

  • Pumpkins/squash should look fresh and vibrant (as with all good produce).
  • Blemishes are ok but as long as it isn’t any sort of mold or soft spots. Once they start going, they’re gone.
  • They should be heavy for their size. (Like me. Just kidding!)
  • The stem will dry out over time but should be firm and well attached.
  • Room temp is fine for storage, but cool is best. They may hold up for months (again, once they go, they go fast).
  • After squash is cut, it needs o be refrigerated and consumed with a few days.

Robbie Sigona is our produce buyer. He works with local farmers and scours the market for the very best in fresh fruits and vegetables – some of you won’t find anywhere else.
