Much better than Butternut.
Monday, 22 October 2012 | Patrick
I have only grown Butternut squashes in previous years and have always found that success depends very much on how warm the summer is. This year (the dreadful summer of 2012) I grew 3 Butternut plants and 3 Uchiki Kuri plants resulting in no usable fruits from the Butternuts but 19 usable fruits from the Uchiki Kuri. I consider the flavour to be comparable but fruiting is obviously far more dependable in a poor summer. It is Uchiki Kuri for me from now on.
