The growing season in the Northern Willamette Valley (Oregon) is about six weeks shorter than where I used to live (Sonoma, CA). So, it can be hard to get winter squash to mature/ripen in the Northern Willamette Valley of Oregon. This squash/pumpkin demonstrated tremendous vigor, disease resistance, and yield. The squash ripened fully by mid-September. Fruit size averaged 30lbs. Beautiful high quality fruit..

Year in, year out, this pumpkin produces large healthy vines, loaded with large to extra large yellowish/pink, slightly ribbed pumpkins. They are beautiful to look at and delicious in pies, soups, and jams. By the way, for those of you who have not tried homemade pumpkin jam, do yourself a favor and make up a batch. The stuff is delicous.

This is the best squash for roasting (try roasting the seeds too!). The seeds produce strong plants with large squash. Delicate flavor that must be tried to be believed.
