(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? SUPERB bug resistance

What are the cons? None

Review:

I trialed these in my NH garden to see how they would fare in “squash he(ck)” with no special care. I got and average 5 squash per vine, 2.5-3# average, and they were completely unaffected by squash vine borer, squash bugs, and cucumber beetles. Good mildew resistance - they’re showing a little bit now, but all my other types have succumbed completely. Flavor is good - like a good butternut. Definite keeper, especially if you have bug issues.

Review:

I'm so happy I bought these seeds. I was skeptical even though this variety has rave reviews. I'm glad I took a chance and planted a row. WOW these plants are ridiculously prolific. It is out-producing all of my other winter squash varieties, and they are bigger, too. I had a late start this year and it didn't even matter, because these things took off. I'm already harvesting ripe ones that weigh in at about 4 pounds. There are tons more growing on the vines. The vines are so healthy and not at all affected by fungus issues or insects including borers. Haven't tasted yet, but I will say this: If they are as good as a butternut, I'm planting double the amount next year. Make sure you have lots of space for these...you'll need it.

What are the pros? Lots of squashes

What are the cons? none

Review:

We had a late start this year and not the greatest germination for squashes overall so I was concerned when all I got was one plant. It made one squash in July. And another. And kept setting more. It's end of Sept. and I meanwhile have nine squashes on my storage shelf, two already got eaten, one is in the oven and another 5 are still on the vine. Not bad at all, for a late start and one plant. Nice firm flesh, not watery.

What are the pros? Fun to grow, tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

This variety produces so much flesh that I no longer bother with any other orange-fleshed winter squash. The neck is solid flesh and can be sliced and baked for easy preparation. Also easy to freeze in uniform layer with Food Saver. Fun shape. Susceptible to powdery mildew but I just spray with milk for control.

What are the pros? delicious, disease resistant

What are the cons? none

Review:

We grow this in our circa 1878 kitchen garden and it does the best of all the winter squashes. This squash is very disease and insect resistant -- both of which we have a lot of trouble with other varieties we've tried. This is prolific and extremely tasty. Thank you for offering this!
