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!

Prolific with minimal care!
This squash produced abundantly with minimal care! Used some for cooking and saved the rest for animal fodder over winter. Will plant again.
