My acorn squash turn yellow during storage. Why?

The problem may be improper storage.  Acorn-type squashes should be stored at a temperature of 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit.  Some acorn-type squashes will turn yellow when stored at temperatures above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.  High storage temperatures may also cause the flesh to become stringy.
