Cucurbita maxima Squash Winter


  • From Cornell's Vegetable Breeding Institute comes a specialty butternut sure to gain attention. This 4-5" long mini-butternut has a dark healthy orange-buff color. Smaller than Ponca with a much more defined and uniform butternut shape. Simply cut in half and bake! Shows moderate to high levels of field resistance to Powdery Mildew; able to ripen to full maturity with high-sugar content. Stores well. Note: Fruit initially appears dark green when immature and ripens to deep orangey-tan color. Final coloring can be slow to develop under cool conditions. Early planting is recommended.
