Courtesy Central American ProduceCentral American Produce Inc., Pompano Beach, Fla., has received its fist shipment of Guatemalan butternut squash.

Spaghetti squash should follow about Jan. 7, according to a Central American news release. Both products will be packed under the company’s Mayan Pride label.

The company will market both products until June.

“We grow our squash in a very unique climate,” Michael Warren, Central American’s president, said in the release. “Our squash is cultivated at high altitudes in volcanic soils, which truly enhances the flavor, sweetness, and vibrant color of each squash variety.”

Central American categorizes butternut squash as a “super food,” Warren said.

“It’s high in many antioxidant-rich vitamins and minerals, and is recommended for controlling cholesterol and weight reduction,” he said.
