New! (C. moschata) 110 days. Old New England variety, preserved at Old Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts, where our foundation seed came from. Reportedly originated among the Iroquois Indians. Introduced 1834 by Boston seedsman Charles H. Hovey, this ancestor of today's Butternut was described in detail in Fearing Burr's book of 1865. The bottle-shaped fruits reach 2-4 lbs, having a curved neck and fine-grained, sweet flesh. Resistant to pests and diseases; a superlative keeper. Formerly quite common, it has become very difficult to find, and we are pleased to offer it.

What are the pros? Very prolific, sweet tasting

What are the cons? Susceptible to powdery mildew

Review:

I ordered this seed mostly because it had been preserved at Old Sturbridge Village, of which I am a huge fan. Residing in New England, I choose seeds preserved and grown here, as I believe I will have the most success. I also am intrigued to grow plants that my ancestors grew.So I chose this squash, and was so excited to try it! The plants were very prolific, grew several fruits per plant, and I also trellised them on bamboo poles. The fruits were about 3-4#, and looked just like the photo here. I was only able to harvest 2 squashes as the others were eaten by animals, rotted on the vine before I could harvest, or were threatened by powdery mildew. I was also happy this plant was advertised to have good disease resistance. Like most of my curcurbits, this finally succumbed to powdery mildew. It produced until the first frost. We ate it for Thanksgiving. Easy to peel, cut, and cook. Very sweet; highly recommend! Thanks Baker Creek for providing this butternut precursor! Will grow again!

Review:

We grew the Canada Crooknecks in our new 3 sisters garden 30X30 feet. They were the one C. Moschata that did not grow out onto the lawn. They had no damage from vine borers. The flavor was sweet like butternut, but dryer flesh, We loved it!
