(C. maxima) 100 days The beautiful giant pumpkin of historic Paris, the big pinkish-yellow fruit can grow to over 100 lbs. They are round, flattened and have light ribbing. They are good keepers and are still popular in France. Good in pies, soups and baked. A winner for farm markets!

Review:

I planted the" Jaune Gros de Pars" in our community garden this year on a mound of soil. Despite a near drought in July and little attention given to them during that month I had enough pumpkins to decorate our outdoor classroom/gazebo. We are making soup out of several because after living in France for a number of years and enjoying great soup made from these we want to reproduce that experience here. This was also a great choice for a community garden because of the interest that it creates.

Review:

I started seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting. They grew quickly in quart sized pots and were good sized with excellent root by the time I transplanted(May 20th) with minimal hardening off. That same week, it got really cold. I would lose them, and although most of the pre-existing vine died off, they came back with a vengeance from the base of the plant. I planted two for pollination. At first i was worried. All the flowers kept ending up male, so I was certain I wouldn't get any decent pumpkins by the time a female flower appeared. Once they did appear, I pollinated by hand, going from the male flowers, to the females to ensure they wouldn't be wasted. After that, the pumpkins grew quickly! Way bigger and faster than any other I've ever grown! They would have gotten bigger had I added manure like my neighbor did to his. These pumpkins smell like watermelon or canteloupe fresh. Guts are more dry than slimy, so it's easy to clean. Flesh is very sugary and an ideal baking choice

Review:

This is one of my favorite squash. It's beautiful and I haven't tried it yet but it supposedly tastes good, for a pumpkin that is. I live in Zone 5, and this plant grew 2 30lb. and plenty of 10lb. fruit. The second year I only got one, but it got sixty pounds. I recommend it for those who like big squash.

Review:

I haven't grown these yet, but will go for it in '12. I have good success here in Northern CA with all the winter squashes, so I'm not too worried. This squash is absolutley the best tasting I have ever had. I make soup, pie, bread, icecream, stew,, mashed with butter, you name it, and this has the very best pumpkin flavor and sweetness. And the fruits store a very long time, even in the house! I use them as decor through the fall and then eat them through the winter and spring.

Review:

I planted only 3 plants of these Big Yellow of Paris.Out of the 3 plants I had, only 1 live which produced only 2 very small pumpkins.We had a drought this year, but we did keep these pumpkins watered. I'm sure their lack of growth was operator error rather than a true representation of what they can really do.Sure enough, the 2 pumpkins we did have were bright yellow, not the Halloween orange you'd expect. The flesh was pale also.I may give these guys a chance next year, but will not count on these to be my main pumpkin plant.
