Answer: I bet you harvested too early. Summer squashes, like zucchini and yellow crookneck, taste best when harvested while they're still small. But winter squashes are different. For best flavor, wait to harvest acorn, butternut, and other winter squashes until later in the season when the rind has hardened. The taste usually improves if the squash is stored for weeks before using.
