What are the pros? vine borer resistant

What are the cons? None

Review:

Planted mid June. Long vines, heavy blossoms. Kept smelling strong perfume, thought was coming from neighbors home. Noticed bees and other insect were in large numbers on blossoms, more than other squash growing nearby. Smelled the blossom and realized the smell was coming from blossom. Never have grown any other squash with frangrant blossoms. Thus far 8 fruit developing. Vine borer has made its usual hit, but plant seems to be holding strong. Growing on black plastic. High 90s causing plant to wilt, but rebounds in evening. Hope taste meets what other reviews state, yet to be seen.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, gorgeous, tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

These are some extremely prolific vines! They sprouted very quickly and the seedlings were enormous so I could tell they were going to be some huge vines. They wound their way all around my garden, down the walkways, and climbed over any other plant in their way. So, you definitely need a bit of space to be able to grow these, but it was worth it! They are such a beautiful color and fun shape, and delicious, too! They started fruiting quickly and the squashes grew and hardened quickly as well. I planted these at the end of March and was able to start harvesting squash by the end of June, so I think they are right on with the "92 days to maturity" estimation.

What are the pros? Amazing nutrition with skin

What are the cons? not happy at high altitude

Review:

Grew this in Flagstaff, AZ and it did just ok, mostly due to the consistently cool summer growing nights. We only had a couple of squash for the season. I am planning to grow in MA next season. The Red Kuri squash is amazing for pies and all other uses, especially if you wash the outside well and steam the squash WITH the skin on. Process the squash with skin in food processor till smooth. The skin adds so much richness to pies, pureed squash, soups, etc - a big dose of beta carotene to your diet. My favorite squash to date!

What are the pros? Grows fast with long runners.

What are the cons? Lots of stink bug eggs

Review:

Beautiful color. Planted in hills. Long runners. Dirt at points along runner will set new roots. Totally covered planting area making it hard to spray and weed. Good bloomer. Can't wait to taste. Don't know when time to harvest.

What are the pros? Prolific; Creamy; Sweet, Early

What are the cons? Especially Long Vines

Review:

Creamy, mildly sweet, reliable, and gorgeous! The red kuris I grew had a distinctive, rich creaminess. The best analogy I can think of would be that the generic kabocha I planted was 1% milk while the kuri was whole. Consistency-wise, it was thicker than all 5 pumpkin varieties I planted, which were also dry-fleshed kabocha types. For a comparison, after 2 months of curing, it was also quite sweet, though not the sugary taste of some store-bought kabochas. I also noticed it didn't have the kabocha's nutty flavor. Out of the varieties I grew this year, this one yielded the most. There were several weeks when temperatures climbed into the mid 90s. I resigned myself to plenty of unset fruit but the red kuri wasn't even fazed. It not only set more fruit - and set it when others would not - but produced some gems: one of the pumpkins I harvested was almost 13 pounds! My only caveat is that its vines are LONG. A great pumpkin, but difficult for the space-conscious gardener!
