C. pepo. Reno is a classically shaped acorn squash with moderate furrows and a dependable dark green colour. The strong, single-stemmed, bush plants are very productive. Reno acorn squash seeds produce fruit that have golden yellow flesh that is fine textured with a sweet nutty flavour. If you grow Reno, it won't be a gamble. Sometimes acorn squash plants produce vast foliage and few fruits. Reno acorn squash does quite the opposite. Flowers appear earlier in the year than some other varieties, so there is a greater potential for a long harvest window. Be sure to plant lots of bee-attracting flowers nearby so that every female blossom gets the best potential for setting fruit.
