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. 

Highly recommended by Jason Horner for its taste and reliability.

Sowing:
Mid April until late May
Sow individual seeds into small pots (7 cm) or large modules and keep in a warm place. Pot on into a 10 cm pot when ready. Plant out in late May-June after hardening off. Initial protection with a cloche is
beneficial.
Between plants: 1.2 m
