(C. moschata) 100 days. Nearly round to slightly elongated fruit can weigh up to 40 pounds. Tan-colored skin. Vines grow very long and are productive. The dry flesh is orange, sweet and of high quality. For good eating, this is a superb variety! Read an article about this pumpkin in the Fall 2012 issue of the Heirloom Gardener

What are the pros? Good pumpkin for baking

What are the cons? Squash Bugs

Review:

Having tried about 4 other carving type varieties of pumpkins over the last 4 years, I decided to switch to heirloom pumpkins for baking and food products. This is essentially the variety used by Libby based on my research. I have to say that these did quite well planted with the Long Island Cheese. The pumpkins bake and process well and are of high quality for pies, breads, soups and jams. Don't be deceived by the light buff color when they are ready to be picked as they will turn a little darker as they cure off the vine. Pick when your finger nail dents the skin, but does not puncture. I then let them lay in the yard after cutting off the vine for about a week or 2 and then wash them with one part bleach to 10 parts water and dry. They then set on porch curing till November 5. Squash bugs were the only pest issue I had, but that is something I have always had an issue with. In the end out of 4 major vines we had about 65 pounds of picked pumpkins.

This pumpkin is as described. The flesh is firm and a nice, rich color. The flavor is perfect for baking. Everybody loved my pies, this year! I will definitely be planting these again.

These are a great addition to any pumpkin patch. They grow large and provide a good contrast to standard orange varieties.
