This Butternut Squash variety was originally developed by Charles A. Leggett in Stow, MA, in the 1940s by crossing the Gooseneck squash with other varieties. It it's the most widely grown winter squash, famous for its delicious deep orange flesh. Butternut squash will keep in storage for up to 5 months.
Plant next to dill, garlic, parsley, borage, marigolds, mint, oregano, rosemary, thyme, calendula, bee balm, catnip, catmint, zinnias, and snapdragons to repel harmful pests, attract predatory insects and pollinators. Interplant with peas and beans to add nitrogen to the soil and balance pH levels. Squash provides shade to radishes and other small root vegetables. Don't grow next to potatoes or pumpkins.
Starter will be in a 4" reusable nursery pot.
