Cooking ‘Unripened’ Squash

Anonymous added on November 10, 2010 | Answered

Picked a large squash variety, not sure which. Thought it was 'Sweet Meat' but was wrong. Anyway, I cut it in half today and there is a green band going around the inside of the rind. It is not boldly green but a slight pale green. I am wondering if it is alright to cook this squash for pumpkin-type recipes.

It is edible, but you may find that the flavor is weak or bitter.
