What are the pros? Beautiful plant!

What are the cons? Powdery mildew

Review:

I planted one of these in my raised bed after being repeatedly warned that one plant was enough- they were right! The plant grew and grew and grew, eventually taking over literally every square inch of the bed and climbing up both trellis. Word of warning-give it SPACE. I planted in early August in San Francisco after starting the seeds inside for 4 weeks and just harvested two gorgeous little pumpkins- the third and largest was stolen but it was a beautiful little guy too. We have cool and foggy days in August which is less than idea but this guy thrived until the ATTACK. I was infested with powdery mildew which started in early September and unfortunately killed off most of the plant in the main bed. I tried a milk water base which worked well as a preventative when done daily but did not solve the infested leaves. Neem oil helped but the plant was too far gone. Still, I was able to harvest nice small pumpkins. Had I started earlier and treated with something earlier. A Keeper!

What are the pros? Pies

What are the cons? None

Review:

I'm only here to write about how fantastic these are in pie. Creamy, fluffy, pumpkiny, buttery flesh. I am allergic to dairy, so my pies do not include any dairy. This baked up beautifully with minimal additions into the best pumpkin pie I've ever made. A buttery, smooth, sweet flesh that is savory at the same time. Fine grained flesh blends up into an buttery mousse texture! Highly recommend. Plus, the seeds are good roasted. I haven't grown myself, but I visited the organic farms that do. Mostly reisistant to powdery mildew in a climate where there is a constant marine layer and it goes from sunny and warm, to cool and humid several times throughout the day. Slightly sandy soils as well and these do fine in the valley areas of Carpinteria, CA where its more mountainous. Plants produced despite the mildew. Grow this and be selfish. They're too good to leave yourself without any.

What are the pros? great flavor and production

What are the cons? none

Review:

These little pumpkins are great producers in my zone 2 garden. They don't normally have time to fully ripen in our 90 day season, but we pick them green and they ripen beautifully in storage. They taste fantastic, and are versatile in sweet and savory recipes. They aren't the longest keepers, but normally last us at least until after Christmas (from an early September harvest) just stored in a cool room. We grow them every year, now.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great taste.

What are the cons? Susceptable to squash borers.

Review:

These pumpkins are easy to grow, taste great, and don't mind the Texas heat. I've grown these for two years, and both years they were eaten by squash borers, but not before 3 or 4 pumpkins were almost full-sized. When the plants died, the pumpkins quickly turned orange. They tasted fine. These plants look amazing and grow like crazy. Give them plenty of room.

Review:

I have been growing New England sugar pie on and off for a number of years.It is a wonderful variety. It copes with our oddball summers which can be a combination of early summer drought and heat, mid to late summer cool and damp and the sunny warm days and cool nights of autumn.autumn. That's not an actual dependable weather pattern by the way! anything can and does happen summer weather-wise here. I'm growing them in far from ideal conditions too; in my part of Ireland the garden is situated on a Northfacing hillside overooking a valley where it is windy and cool but bright and sunny too. The soil is heavy clay with an unusual bedrock of an extinct volcano. This little fellow is dependable in these conditions anyway! The taste of the fruit is excellent too and each one the perfect size for me to make 2 modest pumpkin pies.Without a history of pumpkins it can be hard to persuade people to try growing them but one slice of the pie and they are usually convinced! Give it a try!
