(1 customer review)

Attractive, wheel-shaped pumpkins with a long storage-life

The French are famed for their cuisine, but great cookery requires the best ingredients. Musqee de Provence is a traditional French pumpkin variety, and apart from producing very attractive, substantially sized fruits, it is also known for its great flavour and texture. But what will you do with a crop of huge pumpkins? They're known to maintain freshness during storage, even when kept for six months or more!

How to Sow

Feel free to adjust your sowing date for an early crop provided you have a warm spot to germinate your pumpkin seeds in pots. Sow one seed per pot and keep well-watered. Once up, they will grow quickly, so be ready for planting!

How to Harvest

Cut your pumpkins when they give off a hollow sound when you rap on the skin. Give them as much stem as you can. If the skin is undamaged they will keep very well, particularly if left to cure in a sunny spot for about a week.
