Spaghetti squash (also called vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, vegetable marrow, spaghetti marrow, and squaghetti) is a group of cultivars of Cucurbita pepo. The fruit can range either from ivory to yellow or orange in color. The orange varieties have a higher carotene content. Its center contains many large seeds. Its flesh is bright yellow or orange. When raw, the flesh is solid and similar to other raw squash, when cooked, the flesh falls away from the fruit in ribbons or strands like spaghetti. Spaghetti squash can be baked, boiled, steamed, or microwaved. It can be served with or without sauce, as a substitute for pasta. The seeds can be roasted, similar to pumpkin seeds. Spaghetti squash contains many nutrients, and beta carotene, it is low in calories. Spaghetti squash is easy to grow from seeds, in gardens or in containers. The plants are monoecious, with male and female flowers on the same plant. Male flowers have long, thin stems that extend upwards from the vine, female flowers are shorter, with a small round growth underneath the petals. This round growth turns into the squash if the flower is successfully pollinated. Spaghetti squash plants may cross-pollinate with zucchini plants.
