Seminol & Cheese is a variety of winter squash which is being bred by Wren, with Ozark Mountain Jewel Nursery, to be resist the Bane of all Squash Growers - the dreaded Anasa tristis (squash bug). These bugs are known to carry a wilting disease which destroys squash gardens. Farmers across the region who want to avoid using broad spectrum, pesticides struggle to keep their crop clear of these bugs.
In addition to tasting great with only a few calories, this cousin of the butternut squash is known to be high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. A single cup of squash provides over 200% your daily needs of Vitamin A and 33% of Vitamin C. It also has lots of potassium and iron.
Their mildly sweet and nutty taste is perfect in soups, baking and pies. Or air fry it with your other vegetables for a quick snack.
