What are the pros? flavor, production
What are the cons? needs space, but well worth it
We had a VERY wet beginning season with 37 inches of rain from May thru early August. Then it STOPPED for 8 weeks! I grew the Seminole pumpkin and an acorn squash. The Acorn finally gave in to squash vine borer and powdery mildew at the end of the season. But the Seminole pumpkin kept growing strong! It did have some sign of PM but it didn't seem to bother it at all. Late October we are getting frost and this crazy plant is still producing! We grow organically with fish emulsion and rabbit poo from our rabbits, and our Seminole pumpkins were anywhere from 4 to 15 pounds! They look like the pictures above, but I guess with a little pampering, they get big! And boy, did they produce! I tried the first one, cubing it and roasting in the oven with olive oil, fresh thyme and rosemary and some sea salt. GOOD! Took some of the roasted pumpkin to the farmer's market for some of our organic grower vendors to try, and they thought it was better than butternut, out producing them!
