Pale Green Local Squash
What's it called? Somebody said sweet calabash, but Google describes something else as sweet calabash.
Hard to say without a picture.
Not chayote. These are longer and get pretty big - over a foot.
No. Lighter green and thicker. I never see them in stores, but at the market sometimes. Jen had them in her restaurant yesterday, and I asked her what they were, and she said Frenchies call them sweepo or something like that. I tried googling and I think I found it, but want to know what locals call it. And how to spell it.
Calabazita if it's a squatty light green squash
No, it's not squatty. I'll ask at market today and Farmers' Market this Sunday.
Calabash long, opo squash. Good in stew chicken, put in last it cooks fast.
Thanks, eagle ray! That's it. I found it under another name, but wasn't sure and wanted to know local name.
