Description

An heirloom butternut, the Violina Di Rugosa or Rugosa Butternut earns its name from its large, violin-like shape, with a large bulbous bottom, pinched center and slightly smaller bulbous top. It  features rough, nubby skin. The Rugosa benefits from a smaller seed cavity than conventional butternuts, and tends to be larger as well, yielding lots of dense, rich flesh for roasting. The flavor is sweet and somewhat nuttier than conventional butternuts.
