Winter Squash, Doran Round (Organic)
Cucurbita moschata. 100 days.
Unique, small round butternut different from other butternut types as it looks more like a tan, squat pie pumpkin. Very delicious sweet flavor becomes more developed in storage. Flesh is a deep orange color. Some fruit are very round while others have slight ribbing. When properly stored (at room temperature in a dry location) they can keep for over a year. Days to maturity is fairly late for the PNW at around 100 days, but the 2-4 lb fruit can be picked earlier and cured inside with great results. Given to us originally by Lieven David, a plant breeder and seed saver we met during our first Seed Ambassadors Trip to Europe in 2007. Variety from the Netherlands.
Seed produced by Avoca in Corvallis, Oregon.
