Description: These are the well known 3 lobed pumpkins of days gone by, gifted to our collection by Margaret Hulme of Gisborne. She farmed with her husband after the war on a rehab farm on part of the “Coops” Estate at Young Nick’s Head for 45 years. This pumpkin was the special pumpkin grown by the local Maori gardener whose family gifted the pumpkin seed back to her after he died. A good tasty solid orange fleshed pumpkin, good for everything – good keeper. This pumpkin will bring back many memories!

Planting Instructions: Sow seed into tray after danger of frost. Prick out at 6cm diagonal spacings when first leaves appear. Transplant into garden at 1m diagonal spacings once leaves touch in the tray and soil temp reaches 15-16 degrees C.
