Pumpkin- Galeux D'eysines

Cucurbita maxima


  • Vegetable
  • Very unique heavily warted skin
  • French heirloom from the 1800's


French heirloom variety from the late 1800's named after the town Eysines where it originated. Very unique salmon skinned fruits covered in large warts that resemble peanut shells; warts become larger and more concentrated as the fruit matures. 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.
