Winter Squash need warm weather to grow. It is best to plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant your seeds
after the soil has warmed up. Thin so there are 4 plants per hill.
Eight to 10 plants will provide more than enough for a large family. You can trellis
squash to save space. Plants grow 2 ft tall and vines spread up to 10 ft.
Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant. Add well composted manure.
Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged.
Water well during dry and hot spells.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.
Protect ripening winter squash from damp ground by placing them on boards. Cut
winter squash carefully from plants to prevent damaging the vines.

We planted our Red Kuri squash for the first time this year and have had great results in terms of growth of plants, numbers of squash grown, and taste appeal for the whole family. We will plant this every year on our small farm!

I have grown Red Kuri for the past two years and this is the only squash I will keep on growing. You can't beat the taste! My very favorite dish: bake slices in butter with brown sugar (to your taste). When almost done top with fresh skinned peach slices and bake a further 10 minutes.In the winter use canned peach slices adding some of the juice. This can be a "desert".
