Pumpkin - Musquee de Provence - Cucurbita moschata

Tender Annual Heirloom. This French heirloom is possibly the ultimate pumpkin. Delicious flavor (some even serve raw, thin wedges), deeply ribbed form, and sumptuous buff color on 20 lb. fruits. Firm flesh is a rich shade of orange, and the pumpkin is named for its musky perfume. Hails from Provence in the South of France.

Did You Know? The seed cavity of this pumpkin is small, giving you lots of flesh per fruit.

Soil and Water: Pumpkins prefer loam or sandy soil high in organic matter to hold large amounts of moisture. The plants require heavy and even water for best development. Preferred soil pH is between 6.0-7.0.

Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost or sow seed directly when soil temperature reaches 70°F. To begin growing earlier, use mulching plastics and row covers to warm the soil.

Harvesting and Storage: For immediate use, harvest when the skin loses its sheen. For storage, harvest pumpkins when fully mature. Cut the fruit from the vine, leaving 4"-6" of stem. Cure for storage by setting in a warm, dry location for 1-2 weeks.

Reviews

WOW!

For starters the plants produced large, beautiful pumpkins. I got one 20 lb. pumpkin and two 16 lb. pumpkins and they all were a lovely buff color with a flattened, deeply ribbed shape that is very attractive as decoration. The flavor of the flesh is incredibly unique. I and my family described it as \"yam-like\" \"a hint of lemon\" and \"melony\". The flesh was dark orange and super sweet but had a lot of complexity. Each of the pumpkins had a great deal of flesh. The average flesh depth was easily four inches.
