The Red Kuri squash looks like a small, red-orange pumpkin without the deep ridges in the sides. The flesh is bright orange and has a mellow, somewhat nutty flavor. The flesh is good in soups or baked goods, and the Red Kuri's small size makes it perfect for stuffing and roasting.

This Spiced Butter Squash recipe works with pretty much any winter squash, but is particularly delicious with the nutty flavor of Red Kuri.
