(C. maxima) 95 days Most beautiful flattened and ribbed large fruit are a gorgeous deep red-orange. A very old French Heirloom, this was the most common pumpkin in the Central Market in Paris back in the 1880's. The flesh is tasty in pies or baked. This one can also be picked small, like summer squash, and fried. It is a good yielder too.

Review:

I grew this with seed from another company and had no luck. This time, all three seeds grew - and grew and grew and my garden now has 9 beautiful large round wheels of etampes that are all either bright yellow or turning orange. The color, size and shape is so eye catching people walk by the garden to see them. They do have long stems but I've simply wound them around and around in their bed and they seem happy enough with that. I may need help lifting them into the wheelbarrow at harvest time. Squash are not a regular crop in Ireland, I grow quite a number of varieties and love to grow, eat and simply have them around the house all winter and spring. Looking forwards to eating these Etampes and growing them again next year.

Review:

The fruit starts out bright, canary, yellow, progresses to orange, and finally to red as it reaches maturity -- approximately 100 to 110 days. The vines can reach 12 to 20 feet. Prolific. Wonderful flavor in soups and stews. Drain off excess moisture when using for a pie. Seeds were saved from my 2012 crop. Seeds were started indoors in February of 2016, hardened off, and then transplanted into the garden in mid-May. The crop has done well -- both times!

Review:

I was so pleased with the Rouge Vif d'entempes. I only wanted to grow one of each species of squash (I.E. C. maxima, C. moschata, C. pepo) to be able to seed save, for my C. maxima, I chose this, it was so beautiful in the garden, massive red wheels of pumpkin, the vines grew easily over 20ft, despite being a space hog they yielded well, my only complaint which is really my own fault is that several were "sampled" on by two local porcupines limiting my storable yield. I also had a freak frost at about 95days so although all pumpkins were orange/red I'm sure several more weeks would have done them good. Really, for a big, gorgeous pumpkin, 95 days doesn't seem unreasonable. If you only grow ONE, this is a great choice! Also, I've made pie, muffins and soup with my pumpkins, it has the most velvety, rich consistency after roasting, not stringy or watery. It was delicious.

What are the pros? Prolific & Beautiful Fruits

What are the cons? Spreads

Review:

We started 12 plants, but only planted the best 4 -- all we had room for. And WOW did these spread. But they also produced beyond our expectations -- 7-8 fruits per plant, all good size.
