Sakata’s butternut range set new standards in the world of butternuts with a complete range of F1 hybrid butternuts.  The success of these varieties is based on high yield, internal quality, uniformity in size and shape and plant vigour.  Quantum is the youngest variety within this butternut range that has made his mark in the market place.

Quantum’s superior flesh quality makes this variety not only suitable for the fresh market but also for processing and export.  The mature fruit has an excellent shelf life and the firm, deep orange flesh has an outstanding flavour and high sugar content.
