The humble Hunter Butternut Squash hides behind a veil of mystery for some cooks and excites others who know of the fine flavoured orange flesh that awaits any who are brave enough to venture in.

A tender plant that prefers full sun, this RHS Award of Garden Merit winner is happy in your beds, borders or greehouses where it can climb and produce heavy crops, much to your delight. An early ripening variety -  sow seeds from mid April to mid June for crops from August to October and weighing approximately 800g to 1kg.

A great source of vitamins A, C and E and it can be cooked just like a potato, even baked in foil like a jacket potato. Why not give it a go?
