Butternut squash generally matures 50-60 days from blooming. Look for a deepening in color, it should darken to a dull tan. Check the outer shell, ripe winter squash will resist a scratch from you fingernail and the vines will begin to die back when the squash is mature.

Harvest on a clear day when the squash are dry. Cut the squash from the vine leaving a 2 inch stem attached to the squash.
