Butternut squash is a variety of pumpkin. It is known in Australia as Butternut pumpkin.
Butternut Squashes are a yellowish colour and a distinctive barrel shape. The size of a butternut pumpkin is deceptive - look for butternuts with a long 'neck' and a smaller gourd rather than vice-versa. This is because the 'gourd' part is mostly air and seeds while the neck is solid flesh.
