Description:

New Release - Developed by Common Wealth Seed Growers.

An experimental release that we want to start sharing because its so good. We're calling it experimental and holding off on a real name because of wanting to do a little more selection and evaluation first.

Excellent eating quality butternut squash with smooth texture, high sweetness and dry matter, and distinctly nutty flavor. Very good downy mildew resistance. These are smaller butternuts, in the 1-2 pound range, and have dark tan skin. The seed we planted in 2021 came from plant number 200 in our 2020 catch-all butternut breeding trial. An offshoot from our South Anna variety, Butternut 200 is 75% derived from South Anna and 25% derived from "JWS 6823," a variety bred by Johnny's Seeds. Compared to South Anna butternut, these have finer texture, flavor that is more nutty and less pumpkiny, and lighter orange interior color. Not a long keeper, as some fruits start to develop wrinkles by December, a trait we will be selecting against. Plants are fully vining and vigorous. 375 Seeds / Ounce.

We are using the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) pledge with the varieties we've developed to help combat corporate monopolization of seeds. Read more at www.osseeds.org.
