Discover Cucurbita moschata 'Waltham Butternut', the most popular variety of butternut squash known for its sweet and nutty flavor, reminiscent of a pumpkin. This winter squash boasts a bright yellow skin and vibrant orange pulp that deepens in color and taste as it ripens. The Waltham Butternut was crafted in Waltham, Massachusetts, and is celebrated for its rich, hearty flavor and easy cultivation. It's versatile in cooking, with roasting particularly favored, bringing out the squash's natural sweetness. The seeds can be eaten raw or roasted, or ground for an oil with a pleasant nutty taste. Sown in early to mid-spring, this vine-growing squash thrives in a rich, well-drained soil, and in a sunny, sheltered position. Waltham Butternut is more tolerant of hot, humid weather and displays a greater resistance to disease and insects. This frost-tender plant is widely cultivated in both temperate and tropical areas. Relish the delicious flavor of Waltham Butternut Squash, well-suited to a wide range of culinary creations and healthy dishes.
