(C. pepo) 105 days This beautiful pumpkin was introduced by Johnson & Stokes in 1893. Lovely 6-lb golden fruit have white netting and are perfect for pies. In fact, this is one of the best tasting pie pumpkins you can grow; with very sweet and smooth flesh, it's a favorite of all who grow it.

First Time growing
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Space saver and Beautiful!

What are the cons? Powdery Mildew Magnet

Review:

This was my first year growing these, and as promised they grew to be about 3 pounds and had gorgeous white netting on them. They were fairly easy to grow, forming large leafy vines, that only were about 2-3 metres in length. I planted the Flat White Boer Pumpkin at the same time, and in comparison these pumpkins were far more suceptible to powdery mildew, such that near the beginning of September my winter luxury pumpkin vines were all compromised, while at the end of September now the Boer Pumpkin vines are just starting to show signs of deterioration. I will plant these again, but I will keep a close on the leaves next year.

Vigor proportional to heat.
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Thrives, super early in heat

What are the cons? Will devour your garden space

Review:

Three things surprised me about this variety: 1) It took a mere TEN WEEKS after planting (a bit late, on April 21) to get a crop. The 5.7 lb fruit I picked three days ago made a decent pie with enough to spare for three more. I have more fruit awaiting harvest. 2) The heat reached up to 117?F back in June, which ties the all-time record in Tucson. The plants weathered it flawlessly with ample watering. 3) Oh, did I mention that they took over my whole garden? Because they took over my whole garden. I made the mistake of planting four seeds on a nine foot row and got a huge green bush with vines sprawling out everywhere. I seriously underestimated how much space they would take up. I feel vaguely intimidated even going out there now. Would I regard this as an easy-to-grow variety? I would, in the sense that getting extremely vigorous growth is pretty much a sure thing if the plants aren't left thirsty, which is great, provided you are sure to give them LOTS of space.

What are the pros? Delicious, hardy, beautiful

What are the cons? Don't store well

Review:

Ever since my boss gave me a bunch of these plants, thinking he was giving me Hubbard squash, they have been a favorite that I grow every year. And they will grow every year, regardless of if I have time to take care of them or not. This variety is a two-fer, being both extremely delicious and stunningly beautiful. They are great for pies, as they are smooth and require little squishing to get a good puree once cooked, but I use them in everything else as well because I can grow so many of them!

Nice little pumpkins
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Nice flavor & texture in pie

What are the cons? Short storage - 3 to 4 months.

Review:

My friend bought a packet of these seeds from BAKER CREEK in 2014 and shared some of them with me. I finally planted the seeds in 2016. Now I know why she raves about this variety! The vines only grew 8 to 10 feet, so it was good in my planter boxes. The fruits weigh roughly 3-1/2 pounds and are the perfect size for pies. Storage life on Pepo is short, so cook this one, puree it, and then freeze it in 4-cup quantities for future use in pumpkin pies....oh and use HEAVY whipping cream (40%) to get that extra creaminess when making a pie!

Winter Luxury Pie cute

What are the pros? Flavor and creaminess in pie

What are the cons? None

Review:

Nice for small gardens. The vines are compact. The fruits each weighed in at between 2.7 to 3.5 pounds. Fruits mature in about 110 to 120 days -- depending upon growing conditions. Pies made from this variety are exceptionally "creamy" and quite flavorful. Seeds are being saved and shared.
