Squash 'Harrier' F1 Hybrid (Winter)

Cucurbita moschata, Butternut Squash

Half-hardy Annual

 Customer Rating
Bushy. An outstanding early British-bred Butternut squash. In T&M's trials Squash Harrier F1 was the quickest to ripen, and was ready to harvest approximately 95 days from sowing. The bushy plants of Squash Harrier have an open habit allowing the sun to ripen fruits naturally on the plant giving added sweetness. Pear shaped fruits weigh 800g (1¾lb). 4 to 5 fruits per plant, with excellent long storage at 10C.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

  1. Hooray for the Harrier

    By sharon rutland 29-09-2014

    I am so pleased with the Harrier Squash plants. The flowers are superb, leaves healthy and the squah is ripening quite quickly. I have had to support the biggest one in a net cradle. Certainly a must grow for next year, too.
