Hi, the local farm shop has taken delivery of some round orange squashes  (bigger than a grapefruit, smaller than a football) called 'Sunset', but they've not been told anything about it - does anyone know if it's a keeping variety?

Googling hasn't revealed anything.

Could it be these ones, Dove?

As they are a winter squash, they should keep OK.

Thanks Sue, OH says they're very similar if not identical - so either the grower has mistaken the name, or it's another but similar variety  .... anyway, it's likely that they will store well.  Many thanks
