I’m growing ‘Honey Nut’ Baby Butternut Squash from Renee’s Garden, one of my novelty crops in the summer garden. These smaller one pound butternuts grow to about 4-5 inches on powdery mildew resistant vines. With a bit of garden twine they’re making their way up my sweet pea trellis.

The seed packet reports “the plump little squashes start out dark green, then turn a deep orangey-buff color at harvest.” So far, so good.

'Honey Nut’ comes from the Cornell University Institute program developing varieties for small growers.
