This butternut-like squash with a twist has been grown on family farms since the early 1900's. Its large size (up to 20 lbs.) and above-average storage longevity make it a great choice for gardeners with food production in mind. The long, solid fleshed neck is full of flavor with the seeds compacted into the round bottom end. Multiple cooking uses include pies, soups, and baking. Sliced rings from the neck, when baked, are mouth-watering good! This unique variety was offered to us by our friend and longtime expert grower Larry Pierce of Missouri.
