Bushy. An outstanding early British-bred Butternut squash. In T&M's trials Squash Harrier F1 was the quickest to ripen, and was ready to harvest approximately 95 days from sowing. The bushy plants of Squash Harrier have an open habit allowing the sun to ripen fruits naturally on the plant giving added sweetness. Pear shaped fruits weigh 800g (1¾lb). 4 to 5 fruits per plant, with excellent long storage at 10C.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
