Squash Burpee’s Butterbush Butternut
4650 -Burpee’s Butterbush Butternut Winter Squash (87 days) Cucurbita moschata Open-pollinated. Smooth tan 2–3 lb fruits with small seed cavities and deep reddish-orange flesh are “as sweet as the best sweet potatoes.” Superior nutty flavor, moist but never watery—though not as moist as the larger butternuts. Its earliness is a boon in cold summers. Though named and classed as a bush butternut, more accurately they have determinate vines that can crawl up to 10' in good fertility. Still a big advantage where space is precious. Average yield is 3–5 ripe fruits per plant. Excellent keeper.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
