All-America Selections Winner. Butternut squash is a winter comfort food like no other. Waltham’s rich, sweet golden-orange flesh adapts to so many recipes and is highly nutritious. Bake with a little nutmeg and serve as-is, or pureé for soups and authentic Northern Italian ravioli. Seeds can be roasted and salted and eaten as a snack, like pumpkin seeds. Expect 4 to 5 fruits per plant; solid stems resist squash vine borers. Heat-tolerant. Stores for months!
