Delicata Squash?

Anyone seen these around the Durham region?? I can't find any farms listing it as an offering and none of the grocery stores have it.

    I lucked out guys, thanks!! I wound up hitting the Oshawa farmer's market and scored 6 of them for $5! Hoping to save some seeds too.

      OHH My gosh, I haven't seen them either in Durham but now if I find one I'll snatch it. They really are the best.

        Also spotted yesterday as sweet potato squash at the Wednesday morning Richmond Hill farmers' market. Hillcrest Mall, Yonge & 16th.

          I feel your pain - it's the best tasting winter squash I've ever had and it's strangely hard to find! Now's the time though. I found it at Loblaws a week or two ago with a "Sweet Potato Squash" sticker on it; and I also found it at a little Chinese produce market on Bloor near Jane. I bet many of these little produce markets get their veggies from that Ontario Food Terminal.....

            I just got one yesterday from my CSA, Kawartha Ecological Growers (http://www.kawarthaecologicalgrowers.com). Check out their schedule of farmer's markets and CSA pickups, maybe there's one near you.
