Burgess Buttercup Squash Seeds (Winter Type) 2255. Heirloom Vegetable.

Approx. 25 seeds/pkt (10-12 seeds/gram)

Smaller fruit 1.5-2.0 kg (3.3-4.4 lbs) in weight with thick, fibreless, orange, sweet tasting flesh is the trademark of this variety. The skin is dark green with narrow grey stripes and slight mottling. Strong growing vines that varies in shape. It seems growing conditions sometimes produce boxy shaped fruits and at other times they can be similar in shape to an acorn. An interesting looking, very richly flavoured squash. Introduced some time around 1930.

How to Grow

Squash are a hot weather crop. They need full sun and deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Directly plant seed outdoors from late May to mid June 2.5 cm (1″) deep in hills 2.4 m (8′) apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Squash do not transplant well–use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. Protect mature squash from frost and cold temperatures.
