Sour Squash

Sour Squash was a fruit of the earth that grew happily in the partial shade of the thicket by the Spriton Clan. Growing from yellow flowers, with thick flesh and rows of black pips along the center, they were delicious when roasted. When the flowers are pollinated and transform into their bulbous squash form, they change slowly from green to an amber color. They become ripe when they turn bright red, marking the beginning of the harvest season and the coming of winter.[1]
