Kiwi Success's Buttercup squash

Our squash growers have extensive experience  in growing squash, some of them are second generation squash growers and they grow their product with passion and pride.  

Varieties

There are two different varieties of Buttercup squash, a wet type and dry type. The wet type is used for a wide range of dishes such as roasts, soups, sauces. On the other hand, the dry type squash is a premium squash that is generally sweeter with a lovely nutty flavour.
