Squash is a vegetable seen in the game, School of Dragons.
The term squash refers to any plants in the Genus Cucurbita, which also include plants called pumpkins and gourds. In the Franchise, the squash that appears is a yellow summer squash variety of Cucurbita pepo. This species also include zucchini, pumpkins, and patty pan squash. Other types of squash may belong to other Cucurbita species.
Cucurbita pepo has been cultivated for thousands of years in Mexico by native peoples. Not until the 1600's was squash introduced to Europe and elsewhere. Vikings would not have had squash in the Viking Age.
Most squash varieties have vine-like stems and a trailing habit. They have wide lobed leaves and usually have large yellow flowers.
The primary usage of squash is to eat. The seeds and flowers are also edible. Some native peoples used squash in herbal medicine and in some ceremonies.
