Here is this years crop of butternut squash and pumpkin.
‘Crown Prince’ is our favourite pumpkin. It produces an excellent flavour, but as we found out you do need to wait till their skin turns blue, this is a sign they are fully ripe. We also love ‘Autumn Crown’ its a cross between butternut squash and pumpkin, absolutely delicious. To keep them fresh, we need to cure them first, this gives a protective layer over the flesh. Space is limited but we have just sneaked them in the glass house, ssshh……
We are happy to answer any question about growing or storing these vegetables from the Squash family.
