2 to 4 plants per pot. (C. pepo) One of the oldest pumpkin varieties in existence. A genetically diverse strain grown by First Nations in New England and adopted by early New England colonists by the 1700’s. Historically, the flesh would be sliced and dried for winter use- nowadays grown mostly for jack-o-lanterns and animal fodder. These vigourous and dependable producers have more character and variation than your average Halloween pumpkin. Fruit size and shapes vary- kids love them! Fun to grow, they also make a decent soup or muffin if the stringy flesh is pureed.
