A$3.50
Botanical Name
Curcurbita moschata

The forebear of the Waltham Butternut, with a longer curved neck. While this means more sweet orange flesh without seed it was not as practical for transporting. An American heirloom thought to have originated from the Dutch in Pennsylvania in the 1800s. At 2-5 kg the nutty, smooth flesh is great for soups & baking. A good keeper. Also known as 'Dutch Crookneck'. 10 seeds.
