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!

RED KURI OH YEAH

What are the pros? Versatile

What are the cons? None

Review:

Vigorous plants, quick setting fruits and long running season make this one of the best I have grown. Although with smaller leaves than the calabaza or the cushaw the plants thrived in my organic soil. Pies, cakes, breads, soups or just roasted in the oven, you can't beat this one.

What are the pros? Set beautiful large squash

What are the cons? none

Review:

I planted the seeds late June. I had 100 percent germination rate. The plants were healthy and grew they did. This is by far the best tasting squash I have ever had! I love sweet potato but the KurI squash is creamier and sweeter!!! Saved the seeds and will definitely be growing tons more next time. This is one you MUST GROW!

Not Red Kuri in Utah

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.
