DESCRIPTION

Unique French heirloom looks just like the coach in Cinderella's fairytale. Surprisingly productive and beautiful! Vigorous plants with 15'L vines produce up to 6 brilliant reddish-orange deeply ribbed fruits averaging 15"W and only 6"H weighing 25-35 lbs. Flattened tops that are actually concave. It is common for the leaves to wilt in the heat of the day, only to revive at night. Thick flesh is sweet, moist and custard like. Perfect for pies, breads and canning.

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.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
