Ratings & Reviews
Pumpkin- CrookneckGrew this with blue Hubbard and the Japanese pumpkin, albeit in very poor soil and not much love or attention and it was way ahead of the others in terms of flavour. Trying it again this year in much better soil and have also got some blue Hubbard self sown so interesting to see how they go.
