Opo squash has a lengthy, tubular shape with a smooth skin of light green and encases a creamy white flesh and small seeds. When young, the seeds are tender and edible but when the squash becomes more mature the seeds become hard and should be removed prior to consumption. Opo squash offers a mild flavor similar to a blend of summer squash and cucumber with a firm yet tender to the bite texture.
