Honey, I Shrunk the Squash

Ingalls Photography

“Michael Mazourek, a plant breeder at Cornell University, takes his cues from cooks to breed new ingredients that are flavorful, nutritious, resilient, and high-yielding. Together, we’ve collaborated on a number of experimental varieties, including the Honeynut squash, a butternut squash cross that fits in the palm of your hand and has about ten times the sweetness and squash flavor of the workaday butternut.”
