(C. maxima) 92 days. A red-orange Japanese winter squash, fruit is 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.

Review:

This squash was my favorite out of everything I grew this summer. When the first Red Kuri was barely big enough I couldn't wait to try it. It weighed 3 pounds. I was surprised by how DRY this squash is. I put butter on it...still too dry. I put more butter on it...still too dry. I boiled some chicken broth and poured that on and this was the best squash I have ever eaten. All together I got 8 Red Kuri squash and I enjoyed them very much. The plants were strong and healthy and I only wish I planted more. Get some.

What are the pros? best pies, great flavor

What are the cons? none

Review:

I saw this one rated as best for pies, so grew some last year. now my favorite. when I puree them there is NO water. Great flavor, color, texture. not as prolific as butternut, though... I may plant just these next year. highly recommended , especially for pies. I never liked pumpkin pie until I started making my own from scratch; now, I cant get enough of them...

Love this squash

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!
