Squash, Winter – Red Kuri (Organic)£2.80 – £5.50 Select options
Squash, Winter – Red Kuri (Organic)
A bright orange, chestnut flavoured, smallish winter squash of 1 – 1.5kg weight. With its orange red skin and golden flesh, Red Kuri is a tasty globe of autumn glory. Firm but smooth, sweet and nutty, rich, creamy – you get the idea! It is Ronja’s mum’s favourite squash because you can cook it without having to peel it, and also for its fabulous flavour and good storage qualities.
This style of squash originates in Japan but has gained popularity in many other countries like the UK. We love growing squash and they are easy to grow, happy trailing across the ground or up a structure.

Winter squash – Meruhen (Organic)£2.85 Add to basket
Winter squash – Meruhen (Organic)
Fantastic green kabocha type (Green Hokkaido) squash originally from Japan, producing an abundance of 1kg fruits. Meruhen is a fantastic variety of winter squash with exceptionally sweet flesh – maybe even sweeter than butternut. The fruits are quite round, and are mainly dark green with lighter green/grey stripes. We think its best eaten roasted with a drizzle of olive oil and lightly seasoned with salt and pepper.

Winter Squash – Oregon Homestead Sweet Meat (Organic)£2.50 Add to basket
Winter Squash – Oregon Homestead Sweet Meat (Organic)
A large, beautiful, and delicious hubbard-type pumpkin, with excellent storage qualities . This is a variety bred by Carol Deppe in Corvallis, Oregon in the USA. She spent years selecting for vigour, good cool-soil emergence, small seed cavity and premium flavour. We believe this variety is a serious contender to Crown Prince F1. It is quite a large variety with a crunchy, sweet flavour. They were extremely prolific in our 2018 squash trials and Ronja’s clear favourite in taste. They are great for cooking and even raw they are a real pleasure to munch on.

Winter squash – Black Futsu (Organic)£2.85 Add to basket
Winter squash – Black Futsu (Organic)
An easy-to-grow prolific variety from Japan, producing round black fruits, incredibly rich in flavour. The mature fruits can weigh between 1 – 3kg and are deeply ribbed with flattened tops, turning an orange colour in storage. They store well but given the exceptional flavour you will get through them quickly! The deep amber-coloured flesh tastes creamy and nutty. Best roasted with salt, pepper and oil.

Delicata squashes are famous for their sweet flavour when roasted. This superb selection (known as Zeppelin) has been improved by Frank Morton and his crew of plant wizards at Wild Garden Seed in the USA, and is a total winner.
Delicata squashes do not store well so are best eaten before Christmas.
