Winter Squash - Uchiki Kuri ECO

Cucurbita maxima

With its decorative orange-red color and delightful taste, Uchiki Kuri is a great favorite. The variety is also known as squash, hubbard pumpkin, hokkaido, and giant pumpkin. The variety produces abundant harvests of pear-shaped fruits weighing around 1-3 kg. Even the flesh has a lovely orange hue and an enchanting nutty flavor. The variety is known for its long shelf life and outstanding storage properties. If stored correctly, the pumpkins can remain in good condition until summer and bring joy to the kitchen almost all year round. The flavor of the pumpkins is at its best after 2-4 months of storage. Perfect for pies or soups but also for pickling.

This amazing variety is magical when oven-roasted with herb oil or made into pumpkin puree. A perfect splash of color in the garden and on the plate when the gray autumn weather sets in.

This variety is also excellent as a decoration and ornamental pumpkin.
