Butternut squashes have a particularly pronounced sweet-nutty flavor. Their firm orange flesh is often roasted, used for soup, or baked in the oven. The pumpkin is also suitable for sweet dishes and marmalade.


The rather small 'Waltham Butternut' is one of the few non-hybrid varieties among the Butternut pumpkins. Although the name reminds of the North American Indian tribe of the Ponca, it's not an old variety. In fact, the breeding was carried out at the University of Nebraska in the 1970s in consideration of traditional cultivation methods. The variety is very productive and matures fast because of its small size. Therefore, it's perfectly suitable for cultivation in gardens in a colder climate with a short season.
