Squash Wars: Mini Kuri

IMG_2006

I don’t know the exact variety of this squash: just that it is a small kuri. Its flavour is somewhere in between the delectable Sunshine and disappointing Orange Kuri – not too bland, but I wouldn’t rate it highly either. It’s just OK. The flesh was thinner than Sunshine so it baked really quickly, and the texture is very similar to Orange Kuri – dense and good to very good. Like other Kuris, it has an abundance of large seeds in a fairly dry seed cavity, so ideal for eating.

It’s fine, but I can’t see any reason to choose it over Sunshine, which is similar but tastier and with better texture.
