Gem Squash


Yellow Butternut

In the butternut stable we have Destiny. Destiny is a Hybrid runner, that is shaped like the good old standard Waltham with fruit that weighs between 1.2 - 1.5 kg.  Destiny was bred for  uniformity of fruit and higher yields and is the most widely planted variety in Europe and the Americas. Distiny shows a natural tolerance to mildew. 
We have three Gems in our range.  Cargo, a semi bush for summer. Compact. A semi bush for winter. Sphene, a good old fasioned runner. All three are excellent hybrid gem squashes with great colour, excellent yields and a fair field tolerance to PM. 
Daffodil is a unique hybrid butternut with a vibrant yellow skin and  golden yellow flesh. Small seed cavity and a small flower attatchment makes it ideal for the Baby Veg market. With its great taste it makes any drab squash meal look and taste out of this world.
