SQUASH, Xiye Butternut
20 seeds per packet Germination 99% Dec 2023
This variety was specifically bred for resistance to downy mildew and to tolerate variable and unpredictable climatic conditions. Plants are fully vining and very productive, and the fruits have good flavor and sweetness. Squash is nutty and has a caramel or butterscotch flavor when roasted. Exterior color is an especially deep tan.
Fruits average 5 pounds and have excellent storage capability .They tend to be a thicker-necked, slightly bulbous, slightly grooved butternut-shaped squash – still expect some variability in butternut shape. Named in honor of climate activist Xiye Bastida.
