    A cross between the Jap and the Butternut Pumpkin. Once called "the apple of God" the butternut pumpkin was prized by American Indians, who believed its seeds increased fertility.  The butternut plant features different male and female flowers that require honeybees for effective pollination. Winter squash is one of the richest sources of plant based anti-inflammatory nutrients such as omega 3's and beta-carotene, which are important for a strong immune system to help protect against colds and flu. High in fibre, butternut squash is a fantastic food for the heart and bowels. If you struggle with your energy levels it is excellent in regulating blood sugar levels and preventing type 2 diabetes. The folate found in butternut pumpkin held prevent birth defects and feeds both the nervous system and immune system via the B6 vitamin.
