Exactly what is a turban squash? It’s a variety of winter squash that, with time, becomes a hollow gourd. Attractive, with an acorn shape, the thick skin is often colorfully mottled or striped. The bottom is most often orange, with colorful stripes and spots, and the top half has a light background for the unique splotches. A beautiful specimen, this of the Curcurbita family and related to pumpkins, squash and gourds. It’s heavy, with a normal size weighing in at about five pounds. It’s most easily peeled after a few minutes in boiling water, revealing yellow flesh. Use the unpeeled squash for stuffing, baking or roasting. That said, they are rarely peeled, though, as it is most often used as decoration. Also called Turks Turban (botanically Cucurbita maxima), some simply call them turban gourd plants or Mexican hat. You might consider growing turban squash for your own interesting decorations.
