As you know, fresh herbs are a great way to add extra flavor, color and aroma to your cooking. But one huge downside is that fresh herbs don’t last very long. If you are only cooking a few times a week, then chances are most of your herbs are probably going to go bad...
Butternut Squash Seeds
Described as butternut squash’s “mini-me”- awe- honeynut squash is cute, delicious and healthy! This squash was bred to be extra flavorful and turns from green to orange when ripe. With sun and moist soil they will thrive and so will your dinners!
1 year (annual)
|Hydro / Soil||
Not recommended for hydroponics. Grows best in soil – especially in self-watering planters.
|Container / Indoors||
Plant 1 site in a 16" (10 gal) container. For each site plant 2 seeds 1" deep.
|Outdoor / Inground||
Plant 1 site per squarefoot. For each site, plant 2 seeds 1" deep.
These plants will grow to be 10-12” and will reap 5” honeynut squashes.
|Taste & Nutritional Value||
Sweet and nutty, taste sort-of like a more flavorful butternut squash. These small but mighty cuties are also more nutritious than their big sister- they have a ton of vitamin A and a ton of beta-carotene.
Honeynut Squash is the brainchild of celebrity chef Dan Barber (have you seen his episode on Volume 1 of Chef’s Table?) and Cornell Plant Breeding and Genetics professor Michael Mazourek. They bred this squash to be packed with taste and nutrition and it worked!
|Recommended for (recipes)||
Roast these babies with maple syrup for a sweet side or stuff them with cheese and veggies for a delicious entree.
