A great winter squash variety for making pies! Very sweet, orange flesh.
Your order is protected with the LocalHarvest money back guarantee.
This variety is one of the best butternut varieties for making winter squash pie or for cooking in stews and soups! 3-5 lb. fruits have dry yellow/orange flesh that has a rich, sweet flavor. Our family prefers these for pies instead of pumpkins! Vigorous vines produce abundant harvests of fruits that are fairly uniform with very straight necks. Winter squash plants take lots of room to grow. The vines grow very long and can be trellised successfully if garden space is a priority.
