Winter Squash - Burgess Buttercup - Cucurbita maxima

Annual Flattened turbans, 5"-8" diameter, 3-5 lb, thin hard dark green rind. Slight ribs, distinctive blossom-end button. Very sweet medium orange stringless fiberless flesh. Fine quality, medium keeper. Small seed cavity. Favorite variety in maritime climates and New England.

Soil & Water: Provide squash plants with deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, even water. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use mulch to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70F.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when stems begin to shrivel or you can no longer pierce the skin with a thumbnail, but be sure to harvest before the first hard frost. Cut squash from the vine leaving 2"-3" of stem attached. Allow to cure in the sun for 10 days to finish hardening the skins. Store in cool, dry conditions. To minimize the spread of rot, store in a single layer and do not allow squash to touch.
