A prized heirloom Butternut that sets the standard by which other pumpkins are judged. Classically shaped fruit with a small seed cavity so you get more usable pumpkin. Soft yellow flesh and a great nutty flavour. Can be grown along the ground or on a trellis/ wire fencing. Cucurbita moschate.

From the lady in Wogg Wogga:
We had such a bumper crop of Waltham butternut squash that I am trying to find anyone online that got as many fruit per plant. We had 5 plants and took in about 180 pumpkins with the largest weighing in at about 3 kilos. The flavour is absolutely the best. I will be eating them for the next 6 months I hope. I am definitely glad I planted this variety.
