What are the pros? great flavor
What are the cons? vine died early in season
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
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
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
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!

What are the pros? Dependable and Prolific
What are the cons? -
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.
