These are a versatile if not unusual vegetable, technically a fruit really. The spaghetti squash is an oblong seed-bearing variety of winter squash. The fruit can range either from ivory to yellow or orange in colour. The orange varieties have a higher carotene content. Its centre contains many large seeds.
