(C. pepo) 105 days The popular naked-seeded pumpkin that produces seeds without the hard shell that develops on most pumpkin seeds. They are ready to eat straight from the fruit, or better yet, roast with a little olive oil and sea salt and enjoy! High in nutrition and protein, they are nature's perfect snack. The pumpkins themselves are quite attractive, with yellow-orange rinds that are striped with green; perfect for decorations.

What are the pros? Seeds are great!

What are the cons? The fruit was a bit small

Review:

I bought these from Baker's Creek last year (2015) and tried them out in my semi-shady (but still mostly sunny) pumpkin patch. They, along with my Waltham Butternut Squash did the best despite powdery mildew. Got a decent crop. The fruits were a little smaller than I expected (acorn squash size and smaller) and were oblong like the first photo above...not round like the second photo. I stored them in a wagon in the basement and I'm down to my last one now (it's late feb)...so they store well. The seeds are excellent...I rinse and let dry on a towel. I like them raw and unsalted in my morning cereal, but they taste best when thoroughly dry...it takes 4 or 5 days. I did try roasting the flesh in the oven. I found it gross, stringy and weird tasting...but the chickens liked it. I saved some to plant this spring...I also found some styrian pumpkins at the farmer's market last fall. Those squash were a lot larger, which meant more seeds. I'll be planting those as well.

What are the pros? Tasty naked seeds, pretty.

What are the cons? Lots of immature seeds.

Review:

The seeds truly are naked, tasty raw or roasted. I tried roasting some flesh, pretty good. Interestingly, the strings toasted up nicely, great crunchy bits to float on soup or add to salad. My plants got a slow start, but took off when the weather warmed up. They did get powdery mildew, common for squash in my coastal climate. Oh, the skins/rind is tough--which deterred the deer from eating them! Note these are BIG plants, they need lots of room. I will be growing these pumpkins again. These were drought tolerant with a heavy mulch layer.

What are the pros? finding the seeds

What are the cons? not germinating

Review:

So disappointed. planted twice - Memorial day weekend and Mid June in zone 7. Nothing. Kept moist. Red kuri and Sweet Meat germinated and growing nicely. Re-planted again today - 6/28 but so late in the season now. Anyone having difficulties with lot # 0014 packed for 2015? Or advice?

What are the pros? Seeds, taste, prolific, easy

What are the cons? Seeds break, shape, stringy

Review:

Grew these in my market garden this year for the seed. We got like a cup to a cup and a half of seeds per pumpkin. They grew prolifically. The seeds are great straight out of the pumpkin. Easy to harvest after cutting the hard rind. the inside had a fairly dry seed cavity and dark green seeds popped right out. Roasted some with oil and popcorn salt. Delicious. Also tried baking the flesh. Smelled great while baking. Was stringy like pasta squash, and with no seasoning, was bland. I added a touch of butter, a pinch of sugar and a hint of cinnamon and it was so good I froze several packs for later! The downfall is that many of them grew in what I would consider ugly shapes. Some people enjoyed that for creepy pumpkin carving! They sold well when the Howden's sold out.
