Lofthouse Landrace Moschata

Images

We are very excited to be offering this genetically
diverse landrace population of winter squash
developed by Joseph Lofthouse. Butternut squash
is a variety of Cucurbita moschata and ripens too
late for many gardeners. This landrace population
is the result of allowing a large planting of many
different varieties of Cucurbita moschata to grow
together and cross pollinate. Seed was saved from
those that ripened early and had dry, dark orange
(nutritious) flesh. There are all kinds of shapes
and sizes and most of them ripen to that butternut
tan colour. They all taste great and ripen early. We think this is a squash for the future. A squash that has a broad genetic base that will be able to respond to climatic pressure. Try it. We think you’ll fall in love with it like we have.
