(C. maxima) 92 days. A red-orange Japanese winter squash, fruits are 5-8 lbs each and teardrop- shaped. The golden flesh is smooth, dry, sweet, and rich; a great yielding and keeping variety. This style squash has been traditionally farmed in Kanazawa, Japan area. It is said that Saichiro Matsumoto of Kanazawa brought this squash back from Fukushima in northern Japan, in 1933. It is one of the Kaga (old name of Kanazawa) traditional vegetables.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, high yield.

What are the cons? late season split

Review:

Grew for the first time this summer. My new favorite; I usually grow the Hubbard, but the Kuri, is more prolific, a manageable size, the flavor is just as good and versatile (excellent for sweet & savory dishes) and doesn't seem to be as susceptible to the heat. Heads up, the immature squash are yellow, not green. Had a few split just before harvest and these seem to be the only squash that deer and gophers will eat. Will grow again in 2019 and make sure none of the vines spill out of the fence (deer) and put coconut mats under the squash on the ground (gophers).

What are the pros? Vigorous growth, good climbers

What are the cons? Overly dry, unremarkable taste

Review:

The vines grew vigorously and ripened quite fast. Plants grew an average of two squash each. The biggest ones were 2.5 to 3 pounds, the smallest were less than a pound. The flesh was very dense and dry, with not a lot of flavour. It wasn't sweet at all. It worked well in curries, keeping its dense texture and absorbing the flavour from the curry. Not as good when simply roasted and eaten.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, Tasty

What are the cons? Overruns rest of the garden!

Review:

I planted one hill (3 seeds) of these in early May. The vines grew easily and quickly, growing into all the nearby beds, and even through my garden fence out to the road! I planted 9 varieties of winter squash this year and these were the first to set fruit and the first to mature. By the end of July, I had 9 ripe squash! They're very tasty with dry, dense, flavorful flesh. It's now mid August and the vines are still setting new fruits! I will grow this one every year, but I think I'll give it more space to itself next time!

A favorite already

What are the pros? Heavy yield, fragrant

What are the cons? Space hog

Review:

Admittedly, I planted 3 together. I didn't know what would make it. All did and they need daily redirection to stay in their space. I have a dozen or more ripening squashes. Best part thus far: The flowers smell like pure warm honey fresh from the hive. I haven't had the ripe squash yet, but I will plant this yearly just for the flowers alone, now! Pollinators LOVE it.

What are the pros? Taste and color

What are the cons? none

Review:

They grow in northern Maine where the season isn't as long as else where. They have a lovely taste and texture...they make a lovely pie and prefer them to pumpkin. The matured when my butternut didn't, which I also like very much. The Red Kuri seem to keep better than the Butternut squash over the long winter months.
