Burgess Buttercup Squash (Cucurbita maxima) A selection from a chance cross between Essex and Quality varieties, propagated by plant breeders at North Dakota State University in the 1930’s. In search of a replacement for Sweet Potatoes, the resulting high flavour and texture squash was named Buttercup. Plants yield 8-10 hard green blocky fruits resembling mini curling rocks or flattened Turbans.
