Squash Barbara (Butternut)

Cucurbita moschata Now here is an interesting butternut variety. Best picked and eaten while still mottled green. If left to mature will develop a classic butternut colouring and store well. Has a high flesh ratio with a small seed cavity. A vining plant so it will need some space or can be trellised. Approx. 10 seeds

(Cucurbita pepo) Another very exciting release for us. These butternuts can grow to almost a meter in length! They store well, in fact they get sweeter the longer they are stored. The long neck ensure that you have plenty of harvestable flesh and only a small seed cavity right at the base. Approx. 10 seeds

Squash Waltham (Butternut)

Relevance: 24%      Posted on: 17/11/2017

(Cucurbita moschata) This squash is the standard butternut we use today, uniform and straight necked. It is the most popular and widely grown winter squash, famous for its delicious deep orange flesh. It is also easy to peel and will keep for up to 5 months. Most butternuts available on the market now are sadly hybrid varieties and it is becoming increasingly difficult to source open-pollenated seed. Approx. 10 seeds
