Black Beauty has ultra-dark skin, creamy-tender flesh, and a scrumptious bite. Packed with nutrition, this fruit is best picked at about 6 to 8 inches long, when it is at its succulent peak. Black Beauty arises abundantly on semi-upright, open-habit plants that simplify harvest and keep you scratch- and puncture-free. The Squash ripens during the hot summer months and, thin-skinned, is best eaten fresh. Great to eat any way you cook it.
