Amidst other squash competing in bizarre colors and shapes, she would tend to go unnoticed with her callipyge form and pale skin. Wrongly because it is one of the tastiest among the 800 or so species of cucurbits.

It owes its name of butternut or doubeurre to its melting texture and to the impression of butter that it leaves in the mouth.
