WINTER LUXURY PIE PUMPKIN (HEIRLOOM)

4

Germ 7-10 days
Heirloom 1893
It is said to be the best pie pumpkin, ever! Vines produce medium sized, 5-7 lb. tangerine orange pumpkins that are blanketed with white netting giving it a pastel appearance. Flesh is silky smooth with just the right amount of sweetness. A must have if you like to have your own canned pumpkin in the pantry. 15 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- Individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2”-1” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant 36” apart after last frost without disturbing the roots

Outdoors- 1/2”-1” deep after last frost, in warm soil at least 70 degrees. Sow a few seeds per space/hill with 24-36” between, providing the furthest spacing for the larger varieties

Harvest- When skin turns color and rinds are hard, leaving a few inches of the stem on for best storage potential.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth. Fertilize on a regular basis by watering with compost tea. Turn pumpkins carefully to keep a uniform shape.

Produced well and great flavor

Grew Winter Luxury for the first time last summer in a new, not-well-prepared garden. Every other vine crop did so-so to poorly. Despite losing some to the deer, these produced well. We've enjoyed great pies, soups, and other treats and still have more guts in the freezer. I've grown many varieties and this is among the best for flavor.

The BEST pie pumpkin

If you are looking for a pie pumpkin, you will not be disappointed with winter luxury! Absolutely the best taste, texture, and color. I gave this variety one hill and only one seed grew (thanks to the dog!) but I got 3 mature pumpkins from it, each between 5.5 - 7.5 lbs. The squash bugs and cucumber beetles did not show much interest. It was hit with powdery mildew later than others, and no effect on the fruit. I'll be giving it more room in the field next year!

Delicious

These are very tasty and keep well! I like to roast this pumpkin in the oven; cut into one inch squares, season with salt & pepper, toss with some EVOO & sliced red onions and roast until tender. A great side dish alone, or the roasted mix can be tossed with fresh spinach, roasted pecans and dried cranberries for a hearty winter salad!
