(C. pepo) 105 days. The popular naked-seeded pumpkin that produces seeds without the hard shell that develops on most pumpkin seeds. The seeds 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? unusual crop (in the U.S.)

What are the cons? crowded out my other pumpkins!

Review:

Seems to be the same as the Styrian pumpkins grown and harvested for seed (espec. in Austria and Slovenia). The seeds are milled to separate a greenish oil, marketed as K?rbiskern?l (pumpkin seed oil), which is used on salads. The oil is widely available in central Europe, and in specialty shops in the U.S. In folklore, the seeds and oil are supposed to be good for prostate health. Not good for cooking, since the heat would apparently cause the oil to lose much of it's nutritional quality.

What are the pros? Large fruit, beautiful colour

What are the cons? Produced few fruit (poor soil)

Review:

Lady Godiva was fun to try. It didn't require much care, produced lots of large beautiful dark green leaves on the vine too. Enormous fruit. I had poor soil which likely is why I had fewer fruits as I see others had prolific success. I don't feel inclined to grow it again due to limited space in the garden. I enjoyed trying it though.

Review:

I live in the high desert of E. WA where we have extreme heat and cold winters with a long growing season. I direct seeded into the soil in late May/early June 2017 and had at least 50% germination (3 seeds to a hill, and 1 or 2 came up in each). I planted on a south-facing hill in my front yard and mulched with aged rabbit manure shavings. These plants grew consistently, with drip irrigation and nothing else. This is a no maintenance plant. There were 5 to 6 plants, and they produced approximately 25-30 oblong, upright pumpkins. I'm just now cutting one open and there are immature seeds, but I scooped out one cup of mature seeds to place on my dehydrator. I haven't tried eating the pulp or meat yet, but am thinking I'll dry the pulp with the seeds, and bake the meat in a 400-degree oven today. If nothing else, I can mash it when cooked, then dehydrate for adding to winter soups. This is a great looking pumpkin, I love the unique color and am excited to try it's versatility of uses.

What are the pros? Great seeds

What are the cons? popular with deer, groundhogs

Review:

I had two plants. One produced round pumpkins with naked seeds and the other produced oblong pumpkins with shelled seeds. I have planted these before and this was the first time I got seeds with shells. My chickens loved them, but I may continue to plant two plants just in case. We love the seeds toasted with a little salt.

What are the pros? Great germination & production

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've been so thrilled! I think I got 100% germination. (I started them indoors then hardened them off in the hoop house) The vines were very prolific & I LOVE the seeds. I like to let them sit & ripen more in my house (I live in zone 4b so it's a short growing season) until most of the green is gone. I have noticed, for me, that there are more mature seeds & the flesh is even pretty tasty. I just seed them & turn them upside down on foil in an oven at 400? for 30 minutes. Butter & salt! Since I have so many squash I end up giving some of the cooked ones to my animals (goats & pigs & chickens) They love them too. Last, but not least, the SEEDS! Oh my stars... I never have any to store because they are consumed way too fast.
