Pumpkin 'Vif d'Etampes'
A large, flat, heavily ribbed pumpkin with bright orange-red skin. The fruit can weigh 10 kg and stores well. Very unusual variety.
Mid April until late May
Sow individual seeds into small pots (7 cm) or large modules and keep in a warm place. Pot on into a 10 cm pot when ready. Plant out in late May-June after hardening off. Initial protection with a cloche is beneficial.
