Australian Butter Squash

90-100 days. Cucurbita maxima. A Pumpkin-shaped heirloom brought to us by the Aussie company responsible for saving Rainbow Chard from extinction, Australian Butter is a prolific, tasty and versatile winter Squash. It has a pale buff-orange, hard shell and sweet, dense, deep orange flesh that is dry with a very small seed cavity. When roasted, its custardy, silky-smooth texture is scrumptious instead of or alongside Potatoes with roasted meat and fowl or in a melange of roasted root vegetables sparked with herbed olive oil, balsamic vinegar and citrus zest. Weighing in at up to to 15 pounds, this long-keeper may be stored and used throughout the winter. (OP.)
