I have never had such success growing winter squash. From 2 plants I got 18 sweet, yummy, perfect personal size butternut squash. I plan on growing this EVERY year. Now if I can find a zucchini that would produce more than one!!

Not what I expected, but delightful!

Keep in mind Ohio's growing season was oddly long this year, so I planted these the first week of May and am just now pulling the vines out on October 12th. That's like 25 weeks, or 175 days. This plant wasn't what I expected. I planted 2 hills per the directions. It did not have any powdery mildew, even when my nearby watermelon, zucchini, and pumpkin vines did, so that is absolutely wonderful! These butternuts were not compact for me--the grew up my chainlink fence...and 15-20 feet the other direction. I had to mow the ends and edges of my butternut patch 4 times because it took over a third of my yard. I suspect if I hadn't mowed the ends and edges there would have been another 10 feet of vine, just based on how much I mowed off each time. These plants were wonderful producers but the butternuts didn't look like the pictures. They are identical to the ones at Kroger, if a little bigger than the ones at Kroger. They are the tastiest butternut I've ever had. Off of those 2 hills I have about 30 butternut. I only lost 2: the first ripe one because my dogs found it and ate part of it (they love butternut and sniffed them daily as they ripened LOL), the second because it grew on the vertical fence-trellis line and disconnected from the vine before it was ripe, so it rotted. I am saving seeds and plan to grow these again, but I also plan on getting a trellis and growing them vertically. These will be a yearly addition to my garden for their low maintenance growing habits and high yield. Not at all what I expected, but I am delighted!

Wonderful Little Squash

Tried this squash for the first time this year. I have only a small space to have a garden. I planted these in containers with a sturdy trellis for it to climb on. It was very easy to manage the vines. These squash are very tasty & flavorful, and just the perfect size. I will be planting these again next year.

We have a small garden and have to choose our varieties carefully. This was our first year to try the Honeybaby Hybrid and I have to say that we are thrilled with the results. We have been enjoying sweet butternut squash for weeks now (each squash is just enough for two servings), and it's still producing like crazy! The vines are easily controlled. A perfect variety for a small garden.
