This specialty butternut squash comes from Cornell University's Breeding Institute. Honeynut produces mini butternut squash on a semi-vining type plant. The 5" long fruit weigh from 1 to 1-1/2 lbs. and have a sweet and rich flavored deep orange flesh. The rind starts off a dark green, turns tan and then a rich burnt orange color at full maturity. Intermediate resistance to powdery mildew. Plant as early as possible due to long maturity.
