Pumpkin butternut has a pear-shaped pulpy and compact fruit, with a hard and resistant peel, even though thin. Its size is small, but satisfying. The color is bright orange, very homogeneous. The pulp has the same color, sweet and resistant. It is a very rustic and robust plant. Pumpkin butternut requires a light soil, drained and rich in organic components. The best fertilization is manure or compost, added much earlier than the seeds in the holes. The optimal temperature for the development is 18-24 °C while below 15 °C the plant stops growing. It is recommended to let it bloom in the terrarium and to plant it later. The tiny plants are damaged by snails and the lack of potassium. Perform, if possible, drip irrigations and prevent stagnations.
