Black Futsu Butternut Squash
Looking for an heirloom Japanese pumpkin with unique flavor and attractive, deeply ribbed, bumpy skin? Black Futsu Butternut Squash is your perfect choice!
This traditional favorite develops an enchanting gray-to-blush, cloudy "bloom" on the surface when mature. Its firm, bright orange flesh has a fruity flavor that is both sweet and nutty.
Black Futsu squashes are great roasted, fried in tempura, pureed in pies or soups, or pickled. And since the skin is thin and edible, there's no need to peel!
These long-vined pumpkins average 2–4 pounds each and will keep for 4–5 months after harvest.
