Smooth tan 2–3 lb fruits with small seed cavities and deep reddish-orange flesh are “as sweet as the best sweet potatoes.” Superior nutty flavor, moist but never watery—though not as moist as the larger butternuts. Its earliness is a boon in cold summers. Though named and classed as a bush butternut, more accurately they have determinate vines that can crawl up to 10' in good fertility. Still a big advantage where space is precious. Average yield is 3–5 ripe fruits per plant. Can trellis.
