(C. moschata) This butternut, an AAS winner in 1970, was the result of years of patient refinement and selection by Professor Robert Young of the Massachusetts Agricultural Experiment Station in Waltham. Prized for its straight necks, rich dry yellow-orange flesh, nutty flavor, and high-yielding vines. Fruits are 3-6 pounds and exceptional keepers. One of the most popular types of baking squash.

Growing Instructions

Direct seed: 1' deep. Sow seeds outdoors in 12" diameter hills, with 6-8 seeds per hill, after danger of frost has passed. Hills should be spaced 6' apart in all directions. Thin to 3-4 plants per hill. 

Transplant (recommended for shorter growing seasons): Start indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting out.  Harden off.  Transplant 16-18" in row, 16-24" between rows.
