Burgess Buttercup Winter Squash Seeds (Organic)

Gourmet Squash Choice

The Buttercup Winter Squash, a beloved heirloom variety, originated in the United States, particularly in the Midwest region. Within the Buttercup Winter Squash family, there aren't distinct subspecies, but this cultivar stands out for its exceptional taste, versatility, and storability.

The plant showcases a vine-like growth habit, producing round, slightly flattened fruits with a distinct turban-like shape. The squash has a dark green rind with lighter, creamy stripes and a prominent, deep-set blossom end. Its interior presents a vibrant, dense orange flesh that's sweet and nutty, perfect for a wide range of culinary applications.

Taste-wise, the Buttercup Winter Squash offers a rich, sweet flavor with hints of nuttiness and a creamy texture when cooked. It's ideal for roasting, baking, steaming, or pureeing into soups and sauces. Its dense flesh makes it an excellent choice for pies and desserts as well.

When planting from seed, Buttercup Winter Squash thrives in well-drained, fertile soil with good moisture retention. Sow seeds directly into the ground after the last frost date, ensuring a depth of about an inch and spacing them several feet apart. These squash plants appreciate full sun and consistent watering throughout the growing season.

Harvest Buttercup Winter Squash when the rind becomes hard and the stem starts to dry and crack. Proper curing in a warm, dry area enhances its flavor and extends its shelf life. With its delectable taste and ability to store well, the Buttercup Winter Squash remains a popular choice among gardeners and cooks seeking a flavorful and versatile addition to their harvest.

    Planting & Care

    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 plastic mulches 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: After all chance of frost has passed, plant 4-5 seeds in hills 2"-4" apart. When the young plants are established, thin each hill to two to three plants each.

    Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when the fruits have turned a deep solid color and the rind is hard. Harvest the main part of the crop before heavy frosts hit your area. Cut squash from the vines carefully leaving two inches of stem attached. Unlike many winter squash, Delicata can be used right after harvest. No curing necessary.
