One of the most popular pumpkin varieties in the country! Selected strain produces large, 12-20" in diameter, uniform 15-25 lb. orange fruits with an attractive appearance. Flattened at the ends with a hard, smooth, slightly ribbed deep orange rind. The thick orange-yellow flesh is coarse, dry and sweet.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
