(C. moschata) 120 days. These gorgeous, big, flat pumpkins are shaped like large wheels of cheese and are heavily lobed and ribbed. The skin is a beautiful, rich brown color when ripe. The flesh is deep orange, thick, and very fine flavored; fruits grow to 20 lbs each. This traditional variety from southern France is great for fall markets. Pure European seeds.

Review:

Planted in a hill, in a 4 foot square, raised bed garden box. The vines and pumpkins were healthy, gorgeous, and prolific. We harvested eleven beautiful pumpkins and would have had more had the plant not reached over the fence into a pasture (where the cows ate them). I entered one beauty in the county fair and came close to taking best of show. Really wowed the people that received one as a gift for fall decor.

Review:

I grew this pumpkin around four years ago in Lubbock, TX. The soil wasn't perfect- kind of caliche, but good enough to have a decent garden. The pumpkin plant grew large vines but the first few pumpkins rotted from overwatering (oops). Two pumpkins made it, I picked them in October while they were still mostly green and they ripened completely afterwards. They were huge! And exactly like the one in the picture; the larger one weighed over 40 pounds and the smaller one was in the 30 pound range. They were both baked, pureed, and frozen. The pumpkin puree was a very bright orange, unlike the dull brown color of canned pumpkin. It tasted very good, there was so much pumpkin that there is still some in the freezer that gets used for pies and desserts, and I don't think my family has had to buy pumpkin in four years, literally! The hardest thing is cutting them in pieces to put in the oven, then baking and pureeing nearly 80 pounds of pumpkin, which my mom did. But it is well worth the work

Review:

I haven't grown pumpkins in 20 years and wasn't sure what to expect. This pumpkin is productive even in my lousy clay soil. It has produced 8 fruits so far and is continuing, on November 14, to set pumpkins. I loved seeing the bumblebees buzzing in and out of the flowers during the warm weather. They obviously did their job. This weekend I'm going to hack into one and hope to turn it into my Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Everyone exclaims over how perfect they look. My pumpkins look exactly like the ones in the picture -- a perfect, deeply ribbed wheel of cheese with that beautiful color.

Review:

This is the best compromise between a large, ornamental pumpkin that grows beautifully for visual effect and ornamental value and the ones you want for the kitchen. In the NYC area we get hammered by squash vine borers, so anything but Cucurbita moschata has a marginal chance of doing more than creating a vine before basal stem evisceration. Yes, field pumkins (separate species) finish sometimes and others, but you might not enjoy the flavor and they don't store well. This vine is always vigorous with gorgeous solar panels, putting out (here under a short season) at least 1 huge one and sometimes 2 per vine. The main point is that they are virtually guaranteed to finish, and the results are magnificent. Stores great, looks amazing, high structural integrity and shaped well for careful stacking to avoid contusions and fungal growth. Do it. You will be extremely satisfied with the results, and your bets against failure have been effectively hedged.

Review:

The plant start running and setting fruit rather late so every year I'm pleasantly surprised I get so many squashes. The vines keep setting fruit until frost so there are still about a half dozen green squashes on the vines right now. Most of my squashes (15 ripe ones this year) have been in the 20-30 lb range, with deep orange firm flesh. And they are beautiful to look at too. Wish I could post a pic.
