PUMPKIN – WALTHAM BUTTERNUT

Cucurbita moschata

The standard for home gardeners, with rich, dry, pale orange flesh and a distinct, nutty flavor. Vigorous vines produce 4 or 5 smooth, tan, 1-3kg fruits per plant. Good keeper. 100 days from transplant. The undisputed king of all, packed with hordes of beneficial vitamins & nutrients.  The plant will yield 4 to 5 fruit per plant. This one is a must for both the novice and expert veggie gardener!  When ripe, it turns increasingly deep orange and becomes sweeter and richer. It grows on a vine.

Sow directly in desired growing position. Prefers good, well-drained soil. Keep moist & well watered once flowers appear & during the growing period.
