- Squash, Winter and Pumpkins
- Butternut, Butterbush
Butternut squash trace their lineage to a crookneck squash, and was first introduced in 1936. This Butterbush strain has all the wonderful qualities of standard vining Butternut squash without the massive sprawling plant! The fruits are smaller, only 2# each, shaped somewhat like a peanut, with thin edible tan skin and dense, nutty, moist sweet flesh. Small seed cavity on the bottom end. Probably the best tasting of all the butternut varieties. We harvested a serious bumper crop last summer, over 130 fruits from 20 plants. In very fertile soil they may break out of their bush habit and send a few runners. If they get in the way just chop them off.
