When planting butternuts, yield is not the only factor that will determine which variety you will plant. What you also need is a variety with the right shape and very good uniformity to ensure that you have a high pack out percentage of first grade food to satisfy your buyers. Pluto is a variety that will give you both these qualities – high yields and excellent uniformity. These photos were taken in the packhouse of JF Steyn Boerdery in the Komatipoort area. They have been planting Pluto for several years. Having tried many different varieties, Pluto remains their variety of choice. In the photos you can see the excellent shape and uniformity of the fruit.
