Winter Luxury Pumpkin... VPU-5015



Heirloom from 1893

especially for the best pies, soups and main dishes.

Makes the most velvety pumpkin pie. Productive, medium-size (10" or so), almost globe shaped and ripens early.

The skin is finely netted from all the sugar in the flesh. The flesh is very thick, sweet and and deep golden in color. This is a great multiuse pumpkin that is orange and round enough for Halloween, but is a high quality, long-keeping food source as well.

BOTANICAL NAME: Cucurbita pepo


Start seeds in flats or pots. Keep soil just damp, don't overwater. Transplant seedlings 30" apart after danger of frost is pasy, disturbing the roots as little as possible. Preferably plant into a rich, well-drained, slightly acid soil. Give it full sun and plenty of water. Do not harvest until skin is thoroughly hardened. For winter eating, best flavor after 1 month of curing indoors.

Good Pumpkin
on 01/24/17 by Matt in Winthrop MA

Zone 7A easy to care for pumpkin. I trellised the pumpkins and had 2-3 pumpkins per plant. For storage or quantity of food I think squash is a better choice over these pumpkins. They do make for an easy non-stringy pumpkin pie.
