Description

These terrific “personal sized” 1 pound butternuts mature at just 4 to 5 inches tall on space saving, powdery mildew resistant vines that easily climb a fence or cover a trellis. Honey Nuts have a rich, delicious sweet flavor and cook in minutes: simply cut in half and quickly bake to perfection. The plump little squashes start out dark green, then turn a deep orangey-buff color at harvest and store well for months. Bred by the Cornell University Institute program developing varieties for small growers.

While Renee's Garden seeds are not all certified organic, they do not sell treated or GMO seeds and have signed the "Safe Seed Pledge.”

Planting & Care

Soil & Water:Amend soil well before sowing with lots of aged manure or compost.

Planting & Growing:Plant only when spring weather is warm and night temperatures stay above 50 degrees. Sow 2-3 seeds, 1 inch deep, every 2 feet in rows 4 feet apart. Thin to one strong seedling per group in order to provide room for rambling vine. Or plant in slightly mounded hills, 2 feet in diameter, sowing 4-5 seeds in each. Thin hill seedlings to 2-3 strongest plants. Protect seedlings from birds. Thin properly for more productive and healthier plants. To save space, provide trellis or support for vine to grow vertically.

Harvesting & Storage:Winter squash need to mature properly for storage, so wait to harvest when rinds are fully colored up from green to orangey-tan and tough enough to resist piercing with a fingernail and vines have died back. Cut, leaving a good stem handle. Allow to cure for 10 days in the sun, then store in a cool dry place for up to several months.
