Rouge Vif D' Etampes Pumpkin

(C. maxima) Rouge Vif D’Etampes pumpkin is a highly ornamental variety, its stunning color and unique shape make it fit for a fairy tale. This classic heirloom was mentioned by famous French seed house, Vilmorin, as the most popular pumpkin in Parisian markets of the 1880s. The name translates to “Vivid red from Etampes” a nod to the medieval town just south of Paris where it was grown for market. W. Atlee Burpee was the first to introduce Rouge Vif D’Etampes to U.S gardeners in 1883. The attractive shape and color make this a phenomenal decoration for autumn displays. More than just a pretty pumpkin, this variety is the standard for French soup stocks. The fruits can reach up to 20 pounds a piece and will store well, keeping nutritious squash on the menu all winter long.

Review:

We had a milder than usual winter for 2018, I was able to put seeds in the ground sometime in January. Two plants produced 5 huge pumpkins that were ready in JUNE! I cut the vines back a bit and one of the plants re-grew vines and produced tow more smaller pumpkins. Gorgeous fruit! I would absolutely plant again.

Review:

Had to review these Roughe De Etampes again. I grow them outside and this year was extremely dry and hot and the pumpkin dealt with it well growing huge stems around 20 ft long. Grew two plants and have 9 large fruit, just harvested one at 6.8kg. Lovely and tasty, keeps very well and if you have more than you can cope with it freezes well.

Review:

I started these in peat pots around mid-May. Transferred them to the ground about a month later and they have done so well! Each vine has produced one pumpkin, so far. The vines were starting to look like they were thinning out a bit in this intense heat, so I thought it might be dying, but I noticed today that one vine has a new pumpkin starting! I've also started a new section of these about a month ago and they're already taking off. We have extremely hot summers here and the leaves wilt considerably in the day so I've found that I need to water twice a day.

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!
