Red Kuri Squash (C. maxima)
Thick-skinned orange coloured (Hubbard type) winter squash has the appearance of a small pumpkin without the ridges. Hard outer skin with firm fine-grained yellow/orange mellow chestnut-like flavoured flesh inside. Each vine produces usually 3, 2 to 4.5 kg fruits. Considered one of the sweetest and tastiest by many a squash-eating fan. Excellent keeper.
