Description

Earlier than older butternut types

Days to Maturity: 85

All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 1979

Earlier to mature than older butternut varieties, with a sweet, nutty flavor. The fine-textured tan fruits arise on compact vines which saves valuable garden space. This fruit stores superbly.

Winter squash has great storage ability. It is grown like summer squash (sown 1 inch deep after all danger of frost), but the seeds should be spaced 4 to 6 feet apart. Harvest it when the plants die back or just before frost. Cut and cure the fruit in a well-ventilated area, then store at 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
