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? Vines were less than 15 feet
What are the cons? none
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!
