What is butternut squash?

The butternut squash is a bottle-shaped type of squash with a sweet taste. All the seeds and membranes are found in the round part of the butternut and are therefore easy to remove. The name ‘butternut’ comes from its buttery flesh and nutty flavour.

Where does butternut squash come from?

The butternut squash originates from Mexico and Guatemala. Our butternut squashes come mainly from Portugal and Brazil.

How do you store butternut squash?

Before selling, the butternut squash must be stored in a cool, dry place at 10 to 13°C and at a relative humidity (RH) of 75%. Do not store together with apples.

We recommend that consumers store their butternut squash in a cool, dry place. It tastes best when the skin is a deep orange colour.

How do you eat butternut squash?

This versatile squash can be eaten raw or steamed, but the flavour really comes into its own when it is roasted. One big advantage of the butternut squash is that you don’t need to peel it. The skin is thin and is softened by cooking.
