Gold Nugget


A winter squash with a bush growth habit making it ideal for small gardens.


Cucurbita maxima

Gold Nugget is special kind of winter squash.  First, the plants are bushy (like courgettes) and do not produce long trailing vines like other winter squash varieties. This means they comfortably fit into even the most spatially-challenged gardens. Second, the fruit are small (about 10 to 11cm in diameter) and are the ideal size for feeding one person. And third, they are on the savoury side of the taste spectrum, making this variety a good choice for cooks who don’t like their winter squashes tasting excessively sweet. The orange flesh has a smooth, moist texture, and is great for making pumpkin pies, thickening sauces, and adding to soups and stews.

Gold Nugget plants generally produce between three to five fruit per plant, though the number can occasionally drop to one.
