Maturity: 90-100 days
A Japanese heirloom, Uchiki Kuri is a Hubbard squash with beautiful 3-4 lb teardrop-shaped, red-orange fruit. A delicious variety with smooth, sweet nutty flesh that is great for roasting or in baked goods. Uchiki Kuri has proven to be our most successful winter squash for short seasons but will require warming techniques in cool summers. Best grown under hoop or greenhouse cover to reach full maturity and store through winter.
