2 to 3 fruits per plant which are approximately 5kg each.
This grey skinned variety looks rather unusual but is one of the best for culinary use. The bright orange flesh is full of flavour and is excellent roasted.
Try making pumpkin soup!
Good storing variety.

How to Guide
Sow seeds individually on edge in small pots of moist seed compost 2cm (1in) deep. Place in warmth 15-18C (60-65F) and cover the pots with cling film until seedlings emerge. Grow on under cool, light conditions, but not in bright sun.
Water sowing positions, then sow two or three seeds close together in a group 2cm (1in) deep. Allow 90cm (36in) between groups. After germination, leave only the strongest seedling in each group.
Sowing Distance90cm / 36in
Pumpkins are thirsty and hungry plants. Water freely and frequently, especially during dry spells. Once fruit starts to swell, feed plants regularly with a liquid fertiliser.
