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!

Review:

This is a delicious squash. Flesh is super-dense, but sweet and with a unique pungency that makes for delicious cookery. I also crossed this variety with a Georgia Candy Roaster, and I got two different hybrids which I have been growing for three years now. Highly recommended.

Review:

This is a wonderful pumpkin. But the reason for my bad review is that there were not red kuri seeds in the package I received. Some other pumpkin entirely grew from the seeds in the red kuri packet I got. I still don't know what kind of pumpkin it is (one that apparently stays green). I was so eager to grow this kind of squash because it was a fall staple in the country we used to live in, and I miss it dearly. I contacted Planet Natural, the company thru which I bought the seeds, and they did not believe me/would not offer me a refund. I am not likely to buy from Heirloom Seeds or Planet Natural again.

Review:

This squash is the GREATEST! A truly gourmet squash that is soooo easy to grow (I just stuck it in a mound of compost and loam and it exploded!), super prolific, and is beautiful to look at and has great smelling flowers! It actually got so big (even with pruning) that I had to put reflectors out into the street so cars wouldn't run it over! On two plants I will get between 10-20 squash! It actually even seems pretty resistant to the powdery mildew that is hitting my other squash plants very hard this year. I am excited to see if it really turns out to be a good keeper. Definitely a variety I will grow every year from now on!
