Waltham Butternut Squash


Mr. Charles Leggett developed the butternut squash during the mid 1940’s in Stow, Massachusetts. Mr. Leggett, who had recently moved to the countryside, was searching for a crop to fill his idle fields. Through casual experimentation he stumbled upon a squash that was “smooth as butter and sweet as a nut,” the butternut squash we all know and love today.
