Early maturing butternut hybrid for the professionals! High yielding, strong, large vines produce tan colored, uniform 5"W x 11"L fruit larger than Waltham. Fine grained, delicious buttery-sweet flavord orange flesh is especially good in baked dishes. Excellent long-term storage. Popular for Fresh Markets and Processing. Some natural tolerance to mildew.
Created from a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention. Typical F1 varieties are deliberately created to breed a desired trait. Gardeners who use hybrid plant varieties usually purchase new seed every year, however, over several years the seed could eventually be used for open pollination
