What are the pros? In depth spicy flavor, Size.

What are the cons? Nothing!


I'm unsure why others have had a hard time growing this, but this is by far the best tasting pumpkin/squash you will ever try. I grow 6-10 new varieties every summer, last summer this one took the grand prize in everything. It's often times described as hazelnut in flavor, but I would take it a step further to say it even has hints of cinnamon, vanilla, and other spices. It's the ONLY pumpkin I can think of that upon boiling, then pureeing up in the blender, you do not have to add anything to make it taste like creamy heaven. We had two plants, and each put out 10-12 small pumpkins. Bear in mind, they are only suppose to reach 2-5 pounds in weight each. However, I find that PERFECT because none ever go to waste from being too large. We use these to make pumpkin spice lattes, risottos, sauces, and so much more. PLEASE GIVE THIS PUMPKIN/SQUASH A TRY!!!! You won't be disappointed. Just make sure it gets PLENTY of water, and a little bit of off and on shade throughout the day.
