Waltham Butternut
Cucurbita moschata

85 days — 'Waltham Butternut' squash plants have a vining habit. Their fruit reach seven to nine inches long with a thick neck with a small seed cavity. The rinds mature to light tan color with flesh that is a wonderful, bright orange. 'Waltham Butternut' was an "All-America Selection®" in 1970. Each packet contains four grams, which is approximately 35 to 40 seeds.
Produced squashes in part shade. Good keeper
I planted these among my runner beans and tomatoes just wanting something to shade out weeds. I started them indoors in newspaper pots and got 100% germination--thanks Victory Seeds! I was surprised to get one to two small (5-7") squashes per plant even though I'd done nothing, they were in part shade, and they had been attacked by powdery mildew. They tasted great and kept (in the basement) till Thanksgiving when we ate the last one. Very impressed!

Nice winter squash ... far better than any I have tasted.
I planted three mounds in my winter squash and corn garden in 2013. I mulched the garden and just let them grow. I waited until the end of the season when the vines died back to harvest them. I left them on my screened porch to cure for a few days. They are a small butternut but the taste is far better than any I have tasted. They are also a good keeper. I stored them in my cold storage area and I just ate the last one in January!

Very Impressed
I've been growing this variety of squash for over three years. I have learned the hard way they want some attention. I have one variety of insect ( squash beetle) red and black very destructive to the summer and zucchini squash. I have pots of Rosemary and Borage among the squash. So far its working with an occasional view of the squash beetle. Also since there are so many fruits some turn yellow so I daily monitor them and pick the yellow ones so the nutrition goes into the larger squash.Makes for healthy and larger fruits to harvest.

Great squash. Definitely growing again!
This butternut did very well in our garden. We got a huge crop even though we had a dry summer. The squash grew to a large size. Was able to freeze some. I love to make 'pumpkin' pie with the butternut. Definitely growing again!

100% germination
Planted six seeds on May 13, kept the soil moist every day. On May 19, all six sprouted. All very healthy looking with dark green leaves. Victory seeds did their part. Thank you!
