C. maxima type open pollinated
A relatively new pumpkin on the market in the last 20 years developed by the Amish in the Maryland Mountains. Plants can take slight temperature swings but not freezing. Did well for us on the farm. Can store for several months in ideal conditions.
This pumpkin has pale orange skin with dry sweet flesh. Used both in baking, soups and pies.
Can grow to 60 pounds. Matures in 100 days from germination.
Sow Mid May in pots to transplant out to warm fertile garden soil in full sun after threat of frost.
