What are the pros? None

What are the cons? All plants died within weeks

Review:

I planted the Red Kuri as well as other squash seeds from Baker Seed. All the plants shriveled and died while still young. Perhaps they don't take to the high desert where I live. The Guatemala Blue Squash I planted did great and fortunately grew into the Red Kuri space.

What are the pros? great flavor

What are the cons? vine died early in season

Review:

Man! These plants were going gang busters after transplant. TONS of little pumpkins all over...then the vine died and I only got 1 decent sized squash. Not sure why these vines died off but I am willing to give them another shot since the flavor is so good and the size is perfect.

What are the pros? grows like crazy

What are the cons? none so far

Review:

I am really impressed with this squash. My suggestion is to get a very sturdy trellis and grow it vertically. It loves to climb and it climbs vigorously. Every leaf seems to have a little squash growing there. It is prolific. I haven't had the pleasure of tasting them yet but I am definitely excited to make squash soup with them. And from what I see, I will be eating a ton of squash soup!

What are the pros? Seedling vigor

What are the cons? none at this time

Review:

I usually wait until the end of the season before a review of any vegetable variety is posted, however the superb germination rate and seedling vigor of the Red Kuri from Baker Creek is quite worthy of note. Compared to the other winter squash varieties planted for this season (Oregon Sweet Meat, Pink Banana, Georgia Candy Roaster and Boston Marrow) seedlings from the Red Kuri variety came up long before the others with a perfect germination rate of 100%. I am looking forward to writing the second half of this review when the squash are fully mature. Thanks Baker Creek!

What are the pros? Best Tasting

What are the cons? none

Review:

Of all the winter squash varieties we have grown over the years, the color of this cultivar tells the story: the sweetest and most flavorful. It makes for a great gnocchi!
