GALEUX d'EYSINES - HEIRLOOM Pumpkin Squash c.maxima
First seen at the Pumpkin Fair in Tranzault, France in 1996. Seed collected by Amy Goldman from La Ferme de Ste. Marthe, Cour-Cheverny, France. Sweet, moist, orange flesh, great for baking and also used in soups. Fruits weigh 10-20 pounds and should be harvested before overly mature, because the peanut-like warts continue to grow and will cover the entire fruit. Beautiful enough for table centerpieces. A sure seller for farm and market stands. 90 days.
Plant at a soil temp of 65-75 degrees. Seed depth: 1" Seed spacing: 6 seeds per hill Thin: 3 plants per hill Hill spacing: 60-72" Days to Germination: 7-10 Harvest days: 90-100 until edible
