  • Squash paquito

    Does any know where my son and i could get some seeds,other than from a shop got one,they are a lovely tasty butternut type,look very similar to barbara butternut,the texture is softer and sweeter than a butternut as we know it,the only info from a google is,it seems to have carabian connections,and what to with it,son has grew them very succesefully from seeds saved from the shop,but was wondering where and if at what price they can be got for,thanks peeps

      thanks for looking BB,looks like pescos for one,they grow fine here,and a lovely taste,not seen them anywhere else,son usually gets 1 and dries out the seeds,they are a more compact plant,with sligtly darker green motley leaves,more like a courgette plant,he even got 2 last year and not 1 butternut,owing to the bad season,treat them as a butternut,

          Hey LD,you know how you collect seeds because they look "interesting",well I was having a sort through of the cucurbit box & found a pkt of Butternut Squash Ponca [Organic] Early cropping [small],the description is ......

          Cucurbita Moschata - Like the small ones seen in supermarkets.This open pollinated variety produces very early 1 kg fruits on a vigorous vine with good colour & a small seed cavity .......
          They are from Pennards,only 8 in this pkt,if you want half message me your details
