Pumpkin- Red Kuri

1 January 2021
Absolutely loved the nutty flavour of this pumpkin. Bake with the skin on, as it can be eaten too. Very smooth to eat and grows very well. Currently have one in the ground (planted from leftover seeds last year) and already has at least 6 medium sized pumpkins on it.
