Violina Rugosa Butternut Squash

Certified Organic Seed

Curcurbita moschata

A rare variety with warty skin and the richest, sweetest flesh.

We heard about this rare variety from several customers and decided to try it for ourselves. We're glad we did! The violin shaped fruits have buff-colored, warty skin on the outside, and a small seed cavity. Each squash yields about 3-4 lbs of flesh per fruit. The flavor is sweet and rich- somewhere between a butternut and a kabocha. We roasted one for Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it. Needs space to sprawl.
