Description

Butternut squash is an attractive, easy to grow winter squash with an excellent flavour and excellent keeping capacity. The fruits are slightly smaller than many other winter squash (an average weight of 1.5kg/3lbs), allowing the plant to produce around 4 to 5 fruits per plant. One of the great benefits to cultivating butternut squash is that it’s resistant to powdery mildew, which in turn supports increased sugar production, allowing for a sweeter fruit. Like most winter squash plants, Butternut is a trailing squash that needs room to sprawl. Even so, its compact vines make it the winter squash of choice if space is at a premium.
