At Johnny's, we devote considerable time to our squash breeding, trialing, and seed production programs. We offer acorn, buttercup, delicata, hubbard, butternut, kabocha, and spaghetti squash varieties, from heirlooms to newcomers, all with excellent eating quality. Some varieties are delicious right from the field, whereas others increase in sweetness after weeks or months of storage. Follow the recommendations in our Curing & Storage Chart to be certain your winter squashes are enjoyed at peak eating quality.
