Product Overview

Cucurbita maxima

Teardrop-shaped and brightly colored, this squash begs you to pick it! Highly productive with a sweet, nutty flavor some say is even better than pumpkin for cooking.

Once you try these teardrop-shaped 3-4 pound fruits, they'll become an essential part of your fall and winter cooking. Kuri is Japanese for chestnut, a tribute to its nutty flavor. Also known as 'Orange Hokkaido', its smooth consistency and deep color make it a favorite for any traditional squash or pumpkin dish, although it's terrific simply sliced, steamed, or baked. Compact 4'-6' vines produce well even in cool or short-season climates.

Variety Info

3–4 pound, teardrop-shaped, reddish-orange fruits; 2-3 fruits per plant. Other names include 'Baby Red Hubbard', 'Orange Hokkaido', and 'Uchiki Kuri'.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. Roots sensitive to disturbance; sow in 4" biodegradable pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Transplant when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 70°–85°F.
