Burgess Vine Buttercup Squash have a dark green, thin rind with lighter green slight ridges on it.
At its bottom is a lighter coloured “button” or “cup” bluish-green area where the blossom was.
They grow to be 8 inches (20 cm) to 9 inches (22 1/2 cm) wide, and weigh about 3 to 5 pounds (1 1/3 kg to 2 1/4 kg) each.
Inside, they have a very small seed cavity with finely-textured, dense flesh that is not watery. It is sweet and rich tasting.
This is an open-pollinated plant.
Its vines grow up to 6 feet (nearly 2 metres) long, though they have been known to reach out to 15 feet (4 1/2 metres.) A single vine can grow up to 20 squashes when it is happy.
85 to 110 days from seed.
