Description
Burgess Buttercup (Cucurbita maxima)
100 days — Good maritime variety. The fruits are very sweet, fine-grained flesh, five to eight inches in diameter and range from three to five pounds. They are shaped like a flattened turban with a blossom end button. Under optimum conditions, these vines can reach fifteen feet and set twenty or more fruits per vine! Each packet contains three grams, which is approximately 15 seeds.

Although the name of this variety contains a modern company's name, the seed we are offering is in no way sourced from, "owned by" or connected with that company. The name is simply the historically accurate, common name for the variety giving credit to the seedsman that originally released it.

No strings, easy to clean, and bakes up super tasty!
We call Buttercup the The Queen of the Squashes and wouldn't grow our garden without including her! The plant is extremely hardy, starts easily and early, and grows late in to the year. Be Careful :) this baby is unbelievably prolific and will give you many many more squash than you expect. The meat is wonderfully fine grained - almost no grain. No strings, easy to clean, and bakes up super tasty every time. Give Buttercup a try!
