MUSCAT DE PROVENCE
Common name: FAIRY TALE, MUSQUÉE DE PROVENCE
Packet Content(approx.): 10
This rare and superb French Winter Heirloom variety which grows to between 5 and 15 lbs, has heavily lobed and ribbed orange terra-cotta skin, which later turns a gorgeous deep mahogany, with deep ridges, and sweet and meaty flesh with few seeds, which is exceptionally flavourful and smooth. It is particularly known for lasting in storage throughout the winter. This is probably the finest "Cheese Wheel" type Pumpkin/Squash for eating you will find!
Sowing advice: Very heavy feeders, they need soil heavily amended with manure, compost, or other source of lots of nutrients. Sow in place in full sun after last frost; or start a couple weeks earlier indoors, but never let squash transplants become root-bound, and do not disturb the roots in transplanting. Seed are sown up to one inch deep. Grow 4-5 feet apart.
