(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? Easy to Grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is a huge, vigorous vine. Each vine produces 3-4 medium-sized pumpkins, and the plants are ornamental enough to grow around large tropicals. The lush, beautiful foliage fits right in. Pumpkins are sweet, not stringy, and a good keeper. Make sure to let them mature completely for best flavor. The skin will be tan, and the flesh deep, pumpkin orange. I will grow this every year.

Review:

I live in Northern CA, in Shasta County at about 2300 ft. Pumpkin pie lovers this is your pumpkin. Pale orange outside, thick bright orange flesh inside. Sweet creamy texture when blended. Freeze puree for up to one year. Hearty productive vines with elongated pumpkins. You won't be disappointed.

Review:

Hello my name is Mike and I am an American living in Spain. I LOVE our traditional pumpkin pie and the vast majority of Spanish people have never tried it. So last year I ordered this variety so I can try and make homemade American pumpkin pie. I seeded 3 directly into the ground on April 18th. I have them growing in a raised bed that is about 7 ft. long by 2 1/2 ft. wide. After a week or so all 3 started to sprout and I moved them aprox. 5 feet apart. accidentally killing a sprout in the process. It grew very well and of course started extending outside the box on all sides. We have had 3 notable fruit grow slightly larger than the size of a volleyball. The package says harvest in late Sept. early Oct. however one pumpkin was ready yesterday, August 20th. EARLY MATURITY!!! I may just be overly excited but the fruits skin was too difficult to easily puncture with my thumbnail and the color was perfect. I haven?t yet made the pie but growing the pumpkin was the highlight of this year.

Great all around squash

What are the pros? Vigorous plants, good flavor

What are the cons? Slower to mature

Review:

This is one of my favorite pumpkin type squash because it makes large, uniform pumpkins that are good for carving or decorating, but also a lot tastier than most pumpkins. Vines are vigorous and had no issues with disease or pests, and this is in a very wet garden where some of the other varieties of squash did get mildew. Yield was one to two large pumpkins per plant. However only about half were fully ripe by the end of the season (in Wisconsin, planted early June). The underripe ones still kept ok, but the flavor did not compare to the more fully ripe ones. When fully ripe the skin is deep buff color and the flesh is extremely bright orange, and flavor is very sweet.

Review:

Really likes my slightly alkaline soil. Sent out runners 20 feet, so give it lots of room. Planted 8 plants in a row 1 foot apart and produced 25 mostly med to large pumpkins. Puree is bright orange, like a carrot, and velvet smooth, not stringy.
