Honeynut Squash Seed Pack
This delightful mini butternut was bred at Cornell University. It's a butternut for the smaller garden—and the modest appetite. These little plants produce miniature butternut squashes, much more squat than the standard, but with excellent flavor and texture. A treat for those who thought they couldn’t fit a winter squash into their gardens.
