Frequently Asked Questions About Waltham Butternut Squash

  1. How do you grow Waltham butternut squash seeds? To grow Waltham butternut squash seeds, start by planting the seeds in warm, well-drained soil after the last frost. The ideal soil temperature is between 65-85 °F. Plant the seeds about 1 inch deep and space them 18-24 inches apart in rows. Ensure the planting area gets full sun. Regular watering is essential, especially as the plants start to flower and produce squash. Waltham butternut squash typically takes 110 days to mature.
  2. Is Waltham butternut squash a bush or vine? Waltham butternut squash is a vining variety. It grows with trailing vines that can spread out over a large area. These vines will require a significant amount of space in the garden, so it’s important to plant them with ample room to grow.
  3. Is Waltham butternut squash an heirloom? Yes, Waltham butternut squash is considered an heirloom variety. It was introduced in the 1940s and has been a popular variety ever since. Heirloom varieties are typically open-pollinated and are known for their rich flavor and historical significance.
  4. What is the difference between butternut and Delicata squash? Butternut squash, including the Waltham variety, and Delicata squash differ in several ways. Butternut squash has a bell-like shape, a hard outer skin, and a sweet, nutty flavor. It’s a winter squash, meaning it has a longer growing period and stores well. Delicata squash is smaller, has a cylindrical shape with green stripes, a thinner skin, and a sweet, buttery flavor. Delicata is a winter squash as well, but its thinner skin doesn’t store as long as butternut’s. Culinary uses also vary, with butternut being more versatile for both sweet and savory dishes, while Delicata is often baked or stuffed.
