is an edible type of winter squash with a bulbous shape. It has a sweet, nutty buttery taste that is similar to pumpkin or sweet potato. It has a salmon-yellow skin and orange flesh. As it ripens, it turns increasingly deep orange, and becomes sweeter and richer. It grows on a vine, so support should be provided. Butternut squash can be roasted, pureed or mashed into soups, casseroles, breads, and muffins. It is notable for its ability to be stored for long periods when stored in a cool dry place.
