Description

These vivid orange, beta carotene-saturated squash are shaped like an onion, or teardrop. They have a delicious chestnut-like flavor, and are mildly sweet with a dense texture that holds shape when steamed or cubed, but smooth and velvety when pureed, making them quite versatile.

Native to Japan, its finely textured flesh is sweet in flavor. Like many winter squashes, red kuri is wonderful pureed and cooked in soups and stews. It can be used as a substitute for sweet potatoes in many recipes.
