As described by Harris Seeds: "80 Days. Here's a unique little acorn variety that not only works for fresh market sales but it can also be used as a unique fall decorative squash. Bush plants produce 1-2 lb. fruit that have a classic acorn shape and a unique beige coloring that is striped and mottled with dark green. Its sweet, orange flesh is less stringy and drier than a typical acorn and has an excellent eating quality."
