Pumpkin- Crookneck

Cucurbita moschata

  • Nutty flavour
  • Curved shaped pumpkin growing up to 3kg

Elongated curved shaped fruit with pale tan coloured skin and orange flesh. Heirloom variety from 1800's originating from Pennsylvania and closely related to the popular butternut pumpkin. Excellent sweet nutty flavour and smooth texture. Fruit will grow up to 3kg in size. Stores well.
