Yugoslavian Finger Fruit Squash is slightly oval like a very large egg, but jutting out from it at the top are 10 protuberances variously referred to as “fingers”, “ribs” or “wings.”
The rind is white. Inside, it has finely-textured flesh.
When very young, it can be harvested as a summer squash.
When older, it can be used as an ornamental as well.
Yugoslavian Finger Fruit Squash was introduced into America in 1885 by James J.H. Gregory of Marblehead, Massachusetts. He called it “Pineapple Squash.”
Originally from Yugoslavia.
