Butternut squash!

razz90 | Apr 11, 201111:38 AM     26

So a coupleof weeks ago i bought some butternut squashes on a whim, as i don't usually choose them. they were fairly small, and i roasted them - they were perfect! Deep orange, sweet, starchy...
Since then I've bought a couple more, these were larger, and after roasting were pale orange, watery and stringy :/ Those perfect ones were literally the only butternut squash i've ever eaten that i actually realy enjoyed. Was it just a one off? Are butternut squashes SUPPOSED to be pale orange and fairly watery/stringy? Is it a size thing, as i noticed the good ones were smaller than other ones? I was so excited to find an readily available winter squash that i loved, but i'm starting to get a bit disheartened. Please tell me what the butternut squash you buy is like!!
