Butternut Squash Seeds

Butternut squash is an attractive, easy-to-grow winter squash with an excellent flavor and excellent keeping capacity. The fruits are slightly smaller than many other winter squash (average weight of 1.5kg/3lbs), allowing the plant to produce around 4 to 5 fruits per plant.

One of the great benefits of 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.

This is a Waltham Butternut squash.
