Buttercup Squash

Buttercup Squash

Buttercup squash is a variety of Turban squash.  Theye are dark green usually with gray stripes and orange flesh. They were developed at North Dakota Agricultural College in 1932 by Dr. A.F. Yeager.


Buttercup Squash is a Winter Squash - This stocky squash is 6 to 8 inches in diameter, averaging 2 to 4 pounds.

    • Its popularity stems from its sweet and creamy orange flesh.

    • Its shortcoming is that it tends to be a bit dry.

Baking or steaming can solve this problem; the dry flesh becomes smooth and tastes similar to a mixture of honey, roasted chestnuts, and sweet potato. Even more than baking, steaming softens the flesh and creates a thick puree.
