The standard for full size butternut production, and bred in Massachusetts as well. Bears large 9” long fruit usually weighing in at 4-5 pounds a pop, and can be stored for up to 6 months.  They have a lovely sweet flavor that really reaches its peak about 2 months after harvest. Harvest after 1 or 2 light frosts, but before a heavy frost (under 28F). Cure the fruits by exposing them to the sun for 5-7 days after harvest, and cover if frost is likely.  The ideal storage temperature is 50-60F, and storage time is reduced by temperatures under 50.
