What are the pros? Easy to grow, colorful, flavor

Review:

The fruit starts out bright, canary, yellow, progresses to orange, and finally to red as it reaches maturity -- approximately 100 to 110 days. The vines can reach 12 to 20 feet. Prolific. Wonderful flavor in soups and stews. Drain off excess moisture when using for a pie. Seeds were saved from my 2012 crop. Seeds were started indoors in February of 2016, hardened off, and then transplanted into the garden in mid-May. The crop has done well -- both times!

Review:

I was so pleased with the Rouge Vif d'entempes. I only wanted to grow one of each species of squash (I.E. C. maxima, C. moschata, C. pepo) to be able to seed save, for my C. maxima, I chose this, it was so beautiful in the garden, massive red wheels of pumpkin, the vines grew easily over 20ft, despite being a space hog they yielded well, my only complaint which is really my own fault is that several were "sampled" on by two local porcupines limiting my storable yield. I also had a freak frost at about 95days so although all pumpkins were orange/red I'm sure several more weeks would have done them good. Really, for a big, gorgeous pumpkin, 95 days doesn't seem unreasonable. If you only grow ONE, this is a great choice! Also, I've made pie, muffins and soup with my pumpkins, it has the most velvety, rich consistency after roasting, not stringy or watery. It was delicious.

What are the pros? Prolific & Beautiful Fruits

What are the cons? Spreads

Review:

We started 12 plants, but only planted the best 4 -- all we had room for. And WOW did these spread. But they also produced beyond our expectations -- 7-8 fruits per plant, all good size.

Review:

I love this pumpkin and have for years. We grew this variety again this year in limited space with only one pumpkin as a trophy. This specimen weighed in at 45 lbs, just yesterday and bears great ribs a handsome orane color and a bit of green motteling. During it growth it's vine grew up and over an adjacent 15 ft burning bush and the pumpkin initially took shape 5 ft from the ground. During the vines/pumpkins growth the bush bent to its will and arrived ultimately, on the ground. This years pumpkin will serve initially as decoration for a period of time then ultimately as a pie, well, more than one pie ... And pumpkin squares and ..... Soup ....
