Burgess Buttercup Squash Seed. In 1925, a chance seedling showed up in a row of Quality Squash at the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment. This seedling was believed to be a cross of Quality and Essex Hybrid Squash. After three years of selection, the most promising strain was released and named Buttercup. The plant selection was done by Professor A. F. Yeager and in 1931 the Oscar H. Will & Co of Bismarck, North Dakota introduced Buttercup Squash. Buttercup has been gaining in popularity ever since and is one of the best squash available. Buttercup is noted for its thick, fine grained golden orange flesh and excellent flavor. The squash are flattened turbans weighing 3 to 5 lbs and the skin is dark green with a button on the bottom. (85 days maturity)
