Best tasting
Reviewed By: Carl (Zumbro Falls, Mn)
These are the best tasting winter squash available (according to my wife and I'm inclined to agree.). We have planted butter nut, acorn, hubbard, blue hubbard, and many others. This is the best tasting. It stores well in the cold garage for months and months. If we harvest in mid September, we have bunches still health looking in January and commonly many still good in February and March.

Good Squash!
Reviewed By: Marilyn Winburn (La Grande, Oregon)
We grew Buttercup Winter Squash three years ago. Haven't had a garden since then, but we plan to grow one this year. It is the best squash we have ever grown, stored or tasted. Yummie.
