Winter Squash – Butternut F1 Hunter


We love the Hunter F1 variety because it is an early maturing Squash which has been specifically developed over the last 10 years to suit the UK climate. It is very hardy producing strong plants that will provide 5 – 7 squashes.

The squashes are light tan in colour with sweet, bright orange flesh, they have an excellent flavour and store very well. It matures up to 4 weeks earlier than other varieties, but has a more compact open habit with slightly smaller fruit…Brian and Abi
