What are the pros? tasty and sweet, yummy seeds
What are the cons? Wish it had more seeds.
I purchased this pumpkin at a harvest festival farm near Medford Oregon. I cut it into quarters, extracted the yummy seeds and roasted the flesh for about an hour. The flesh was very moist and a little stringy but after roasting scooped out off shell easily. It was slightly sweet, a slightly greenish orange color. I did not add any water as it was plenty moist. I processed the flesh to a smooth puree and made a delicious Thai pumpkin peanut soup, (3 chili's!) I have frozen the remaining puree for more yummy things. After the seeds were dried a little on a baking sheet, I roasted them with a little olive oil and salt. My husband and i ate them all right out of the oven. They were delicious! I will be looking to find the seed to grow in my garden next year or heading back to the farm to buy some next year..
