NZH Our most favourite pumpkin! A butternut type, which requires a long growing season. The incredibly sweet flavour children and adults love. We always have to tell guests, “no sugar or honey added!” Fruit can weigh up to 4 kilos when fully mature. They store well through the winter when harvested with their stem attached and cured properly. Annual, frost tender.
Sow into trays in early September as this a long season pumpkin. Prick out to 4cm diagonal spacing when true leaves appear. Transplant into fertile soil at 50cm diagonal spacing when chance of frost has passed.
