What are the pros? Firm, sweet, nutty flesh
What are the cons? none
Grew this variety in 2015. This pumpkin is fun to grow and eat. It produced funky looking, dark greenish-blue, warty pumpkins that freaked out my garden guests. I picked them at the end of summer and stored them in my (hot) garage since I had no room in my house at the time. They stored forever! I ate my first one at just over a month after picking. Cubed it and threw it into some red Thai curry I had made. The flesh was firm, sweet, and nutty tasting and was perfect in that dish - my favorite way to use this pumpkin! I used it in other dishes that required long cooking times, like soups and stews, and it's also great roasted. It kept its integrity through all that cooking. Perfect stew pumpkin! Freezes well too, for later use. Just pop it into your next stew or soup (or curry!!!). The longer I let the pumpkins sit, the firmer and sweeter they became. And they never rotted. I use other tender pumpkin varieties for purees. Try this one!!
