(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 fruit can reach up to 20 pounds a piece and will store well, keeping nutritious squash on the menu all winter long.

What are the pros? Quick growing and gorgeous

What are the cons? Requires constant attention

Review:

Planted this variety late in May and harvested in mid September. We prioritized 2 fruits and let our vines grow out to 24ft (7m) in a large open allotment in order to grow the biggest fruits. Unfortunately, mildew and rot got to our smaller fruit before the end of the season but we were just about able to recover the prize pumpkin, which came in at a whopping 25kg (55lb) despite a scabbed exterior. If, however, you wish to focus on growing the tastiest fruits, then smaller is generally better, but despite its gargantuan size, the flavour was still perfectly tasty in a multitude of recipes.

What are the pros? Very productive plants.

What are the cons? None

Review:

Very productive plants, from 3 plants grew 8 pumpkins. Most were over 20lbs (the three larges were 24 lbs, 26, and 41 lbs). Planted them mid May and harvested them Aug 30/19. Very attractive to look at. Definitely the eye catcher in my garden when visitors came. Can't wait to make them into pie. Will continue to grown this variety for years to come.
