Bugle Butternut Squash

90 days. Cucurbita moschata. An improved Cornell University variety, Bugle is the first Butternut Squash ever to be resistant to powdery mildew. Its long, wandering, high-yielding vines produce buxom buff-colored fruit with the traditional hour-glass, straightneck shape. Weighing in at up to five pounds each, the hefty fruits have thick, meaty, sweet-nutty orange flesh and just a small seed cavity. It is perfect roasted, baked or boiled in virtually any recipe you could throw at it. (OP.)

One packet of about 20 seeds

There is something extraordinary about the aroma of baking Winter Squash, bubbling with butter and brown sugar. Sun-loving Winter Squash is best direct-sown in well-draining, fertile, 60°F soil, two weeks past the last spring frost date. Plant them with plenty of elbow room since they love to ramble. Squash is simple to grow and transforms easily into nutritious, heart-warming dishes: soups, gratins or sumptuous Thai or Indian curries. Squash requires fertile soil and room to stretch in hot sunshine. Harvest with a sharp blade when skin is hard and the mature coloration appears, leaving some stem. Cure in the sun for ten days or in a dry room for five days. Properly cured Squash, kept cool and dry, keeps all winter long. Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 3 years.
