A popular and dependable butternut squash, Waltham Butternut was bred by the Massachusetts Agricultural Extension Service by crossing New Hampshire butternut with a neckless winter squash (moschata) variety from Turkey. An All-America Selections (AAS) winner in 1970; fruits are prized for their straight necks, yellowish orange flesh color, rich, sweet and nutty flavor, and high yield.
Fruits usually weigh around 4-6 lbs. Waltham Butternut is an excellent choice as a storage squash and for your baking recipes. They ripen relatively early, in 85-90 days from sowing. Let them cure for 4-5 weeks before eating for the best flavor.
