The first local endangered food we found on the Slow Food Ark of Taste is Boston Marrow Squash.
Introduced to the settlers by local Native Americans, Boston Marrow Squash is one of the earliest squashes on record. It grows well in Massachusetts where the seasons are relatively short and cool. The average weight of the fruit is 8 or 9 lbs, with a thin skin and finely textured flesh. It has a deep rich taste and is more nutritious than pumpkin.
