Vegetable

Description
Trailing. Butternut Squash is increasing in popularity because of its wide range of uses. The early ripening, short, orange fleshed fruits of Squash Avalon have a delicious butter-sweet flavour and are especially good when used for baking. Squash Avalon is excellent long term storage.
Sowing Instructions
Sow seeds April to May. Germinate in 7.5cm (3in) pots at 20-30C (68-86F) on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Cover seeds with a layer of compost or vermiculite, 1cm (½in.) deep. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 5-10 days.
Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Sow 2 seeds every 60cm (24in) and thin out to the best seedling.
Growing Instructions
Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 75cm (30in) apart.
Aftercare
Prefers well drained, moist, rich soil in full sun. Also grows well in cooler climates.
Kitchen Notes
Boil lightly and serve with butter to retain that creamy, nutty flavour.
