Black Futsu Pumpkin

Black Futsu Pumpkins have a nutty flavor, and their dark orange flesh is pretty sweet.  So it is no surprise that their puree is similar to a Butternut Pumpkin puree.

Buttercup Squash

Buttercup squashes are small-sized winter squash that find both ornamental and culinary uses.  Buttercup squashes produce thick purees that are packed with flavor. When added to pie filling, they make smooth, creamy pies.

Butternut Pumpkins

Butternut pumpkins have a sweet, nutty flavor, and this flavor is never amiss when you make pies with them.  Besides their nutty flavor, Butternut pumpkins have a whiff similar to that of mashed sweet potatoes.
