Red Kuri Squash

$4.49

1 piece
Red Kuri squash, or orange Hokkaido pumpkin, is a teardrop-shaped winter squash with a distinctive orange skin, smooth flesh and a rich, sweet flavor that shines through in pies, soups, and side dishes. Its shape is similar to a hubbard squash, but it's much more manageable in size. Its skin is hard but thin, and is edible once cooked. Red Kuri has creamy yellow flesh, with a smooth texture and taste similar to cooked chestnuts. In fact, the word "kuri" is Japanese for chestnut. Like many other winter squash, Red Kuri is a powerhouse of health: It's a great source of vitamins A and C, potassium, calcium, and iron.


Eagle Road Farm, Quarryville PA

This small farm takes root in the fertile soil of Lancaster County, PA. Using Integrated Pest Management, Eagle Road Farm takes care to control the health of their produce by using primarily natural, biological means to eliminate pests from their farm. This is accomplished through various methods such as pest habitat manipulation, growing of resistant crops, and cultural/agricultural shifts that make the crops a naturally more inhospitable place for those pesky little critters while making the farmland richer overall. Pesticides are used rarely if ever and only applied if all other means of pest management have failed and there is a temporary, overwhelming outbreak. These exceptional treatments and materials are selected with the utmost care to ensure as minimal an effect as possible on human health, beneficial plants and organisms, and the environment.  

If stored in a cool, dry place, Red Kuri will last for several months. Once you cut it open, wrap the unused portions in plastic, store them in the fridge, and cook the squash within a few days.
