Here we offer a smaller butternut squash, produced on a space-saving bush type plant that offers intermediate resistance to powdery mildew. The fruit of Chieftain PM mature early at 80 days, weigh approximately 2 lbs. and measure 8" long with 3" wide necks. This prolific yielder bears fruit that are just the right size for today’s smaller families. Its compact plant allows for higher plant populations to increase yield per acre.
