(Cucurbita maxima) Heirloom obtained by James Robinson from an Amish
gardener in Maryland. Introduced commercially by
SSE in 1999. One of the best processing pumpkins
we have ever grown at Heritage Farm. Pale orange
flesh measures up to 5" thick, and the largest fruits
weigh 60-80 pounds. Firm moist flesh is excellent for
making pies and for freezing. 90-105 days.
