Tried these as new crop 2013 on recommendation of review. Were easy to grow, harvested a bumper crop and stores well - still using now. Will buy again this year.

These plants grew really well and produced a huge crop of squash 1-1.5kg in weight. They have excellent flavour for soups and curry well. Thankfully they also store superbly as I grew far more than I could eat!
Much better than Butternut.

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.
