Squash 'Uchiki Kuri'
Uchiki Kuri is one of the most reliable squashes to grow. Orange/red pear shaped fruits with a nutty flavour. Well worth trying. Stores for up to 6 months but still tender enough to eat the roasted skin. A good one for those weaning themselves off that supermarket staple the butternut squash which has a thick skin for storage and transport but cannot compare to most other squashes for taste.
Sow: April to June
Harvest: September to October
