Cucurbita moschata

  • Nutty flavour

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. Great for cooking as the long curved neck is entirely seed-free and seeds are only in the bulbous end. Also known as "Dutch Crookneck".

Ratings & Reviews

Pumpkin- Crookneck

Grew 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.
