French heirloom variety from the late 1800's named after the town Eysines where it originated.

The warts are caused by high sugar levels in the skin. Flesh is orange with a rich and sweet flavour and smooth texture that is ideal for soups, sauces and baking. Stores well. Pumpkins grow to around 6-10kg. Also known as Peanut Pumpkin or Peanut Squash.
