(C. moschata) 105 days A longtime favorite on Long Island; very popular for pies. Flat, lightly ribbed fruit look like a wheel of cheese with buff colored skin. A very good keeper of excellent quality; 6-10 lbs. each; a beautiful heirloom variety.

This ranks up there with the HUBBARD SQUASHES FOR FLAVOR. STEAMED OR BAKED ITS EXTREMELY DELISIOUS!!! ITS SUCH A WASTE AS A DECORATION OR AN ORNAMENTAL!!!

Review:

My daughter grew 3 plants at the end of our compost area. We literally harvested a mountain of pumpkins in the fall of 2014. I canned 50 quarts and we used several fresh. Very good flavor. Made pies, pumpkin bread and roasted the seeds. We also froze some. I have never grown pumpkins but these were great. We found the easiest way to get the flesh out was to cut the pumpkin into sections and then cut the flesh from the rind. Roasted seeds were delicious too. The chickens liked the scraps.

Review:

For summer of 2014 I decided to switch to heirloom pumpkins for baking and food products. I tried this variety due to the look of the pumpkin along with its outstanding flavor. I have to say that these did quite well planted with the Dickinson. 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 40 pounds of picked pumpkins.

What are the pros? The way it glows

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

We try to grow many unsusual pumpkins for Jack O'Lanterns each year for our daughter. These made the best glowing Jack O'Lanterns because the glow was so unusual. We even grew white pumpkins, expecting them to have the best glow- but no. The tan ones were the best. We got 3 pumpkins per vine at about 6# each. Very nice- will grow again this year.
