How to Store Winter Squash

Storage life varies by squash type. Acorn Squash stores the shortest amount of time: 4 weeks. Spaghetti stores four to five weeks; Butternut 13 weeks; Butternut, up to six months; Blue Hubbard six to seven months.

You’ll see best storage results when you stash squash in a cool, dry spot. For most winter squash, store at 50º to 55º F with relative humidity of 60 to 70 percent. The one exception, again, is Acorn Squash, which should be kept at temperatures less than 55.
