(Cucurbita moschata) This butternut, an AAS winner in 1970, was the
result of years of patient refinement and selection
by Bob Young of Waltham, Massachusetts. 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. 83-100 days.
