Winter squash may be stored for as long as three to six months, depending on the variety, but that doesn’t mean it’s immune to rot. Look for squash that feels firm and heavy for its size, with no soft spots or areas of visible decay. The rind should be hard and dull, not glossy. For best results, store in a cool, dry place (the ideal temperature is around 50*F), or cook, mash, and freeze the flesh in zip-top bags.
