Butternut Squash - Waltham Butternut ECO

Cucurbita moschata

A cool cultural heritage from 1944 with incredible quality. Beautiful, decorative, yellow pear-like fruits weighing around 2 kg. Orange flesh with a small seed cavity and a sweet delicate taste with a slight nutty aftertaste. The range of uses for Waltham Butternut in cooking is vast and at Florea, this is a big favorite of ours. An orange-colored, delicious, autumnal pumpkin soup with ginger and chili or a magical risotto with oven-roasted butternut squash are two of our favorite dishes with this fantastic squash. It also goes well with various types of pies and desserts as well as other types of oven-baked dishes thanks to its delightful taste. Another big plus for this variety is the long storage time of the pumpkins. The fabulous butternut squash can be stored for 2-4 months after harvest.

In addition to the delicious pumpkins, the variety has beautiful vines that grow 1-2 meters long with sweet flowers.
