Our newest riff on the standard butternut.
One of our best-tasting Johnny’s-bred butternuts! Produces big yields with very few culls. Better than similar market hybrids. Great, marketable size — in between JWS 6823 and Waltham Butternut — large enough for a few servings, but not so big it goes to waste. A smaller, improved Waltham: more uniform and attractive without the oversized fruits. Vigorous plants and strong PMR ensure crops reach maturity under high disease pressure. Long vines. Good storage life. Intermediate resistance to powdery mildew. Our thanks to Cornell University for their help in developing this variety. Avg. weight: 3–4 lb. Avg. yield: 5–6 fruits/plant. USDA Certified Organic.
