Review:

I planted these pretty late in the summer, not even sure we'd get a harvest, but we got several off the vines before the frost. I didn't get all the vines pulled, and noticed the vines started growing again, even after frost! :) Not that it mattered here in Nebraska, but interesting. I scrape out the seeds and bake. So good. The description says dry, but I found it smooth, sweet, and moist with no strings. I'll plant next year, earlier in the season. As other reviewers have noted, this vine is super vigorous. In less than a month, it had filled in a large space and taken over my tomato cages, with fruit hanging on the cages. :)

Review:

Easily my favorite winter squash for eating! Vines get super long and mature quickly. Direct sow in May. Harvested several squash in early July, then the plant stopped flowering and some of the foliage died during the hot period in July and early August. Now that the nights are cooler, it's back to growing nonstop and I have 4 more squash maturing, and it's still flowering so I may end up with more! Less sweet than most winter squash and small enough that it's easy to process. Takes over my whole driveway and climbs into the neighbor's yard but totally worth it!

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.

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!
