Keep well watered throughout the season. Feed and mulch regularly.

Harvest August until first frosts. Fruits store throughout the winter if kept in a warm place.

Sow seeds 2cm (1in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good seed compost at 21-25C (70-77F). Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 5-7 days. Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow in cold soils. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm (36in) and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established.

Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed, 90cm (36in) apart each way.

Never fails 2015-10-30

Have grown these for 3 years. They start slow but grow fast. Every year when I clear away there alway 3 hiding that I have missed. I was still eating the previous years in April and a beautiful flavour.

T&M replied on 2015-11-02: Thank you very much for your review. I am glad that you have been happy with the results of this variety. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future.

Quick cropper 2013-11-18

Never had any success with butternut squash growing until I tried Barbara - much quicker to mature than other so-called early butternuts. Tastes good too.

Oustanding Cropper 2011-10-12

Massive fruits the largest being over 20 inches long and 24 inches round
