Squash, Waltham Butternut

  • Sold out


Cucurbita moschata

The standard for butternut squash. Sweet, dense flesh with a small seed cavity.

Heirloom butternut squash with rich, sweet, golden flesh that serves as the centerpiece for so many winter meals. Thin skin is easy to peel, and the small seed cavity means plenty for cooking! Open-pollinated, heavily vining.

Squashes are a part of the vast agricultural and culinary legacy of this continent, with indigenous seedkeepers in modern-day Mexico and Central America cultivating some types at least 10,000 years ago. Along with their sisters corn and beans, they spread throughout the western hemisphere through the loving care of Native Americans and by the time European colonizers arrived on the continent, many varieties of squash were being grown by farmers from the southwest to the northeast. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the original stewards of the nutrient-packed, long-keeping, healthy-seed-spawning miracle that is a squash!
