Winter Squash, Little Gem Red Kuri (Organic)

$3.80$52.00

Cucurbita maxima. 80 days.

Cute, small red kuri type fruit are a good size in the kitchen and for market. Plants produce numerous fruit that weigh 2-5 lbs each. Stores well and has dense, finely-textured flesh. This variety is even good raw, sliced in salads or diced as a snack. It is crunchy and sweet like a carrot, but not as watery, and the nuttiness is almost addictive – much like eating carrots and chestnuts. We love its sweet flavor diced and sautéed with garlic and soy sauce. Good uniformity and bright color. This variety does well even in challenging conditions. We think Little Gem is the perfect size for a kuri squash and its high yield makes it a great choice for market farms.
