Our Feedback
First time I have ever tried to grow fruit, i.e. a relative novice. So you can imagine my surprise and delight when my Raspberries Polkas started to appear a couple of weeks ago (a month early!). Now growing in abundance and with a little bit of added sugar... "Absolutely delicious!!!!"

Bred in the UK, this butternut variety is perfect for the UK climate as the fruits mature earlier than Amercian bred varieties - up to 4 weeks earlier!

The pale cream fruits have a rich golden-orange flesh that is very sweet due to its high sugar content. Average fruit weight is 1-2 lbs (800g-1kg). As Winter squashes go, this is one of our favourites, and a variety that we have found stores particularly well.

Heavy cropping and reliable in habit we really cannot recommend this variety enough!

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
