An older, smaller variety of the Connecticut Field pumpkin, Small Sugar is even better for pies. When Mr. Burpee offered it in 1887 he said: 'A very prolific and handsome little pumpkin; usual size about 10" in diameter; skin is a deep orange-yellow. It is very fine-grained, sweet and sugary, and keeps well.'
Pumpkin, Musquee de Provence Favorite pumpkin of chefs. A beautiful heirloom from the south of France with large 20 lb. flattened fruits that are heavily ribbed. Green when immature, they turn a lovely deep brown when fully ripe. The deep orange flesh is a particular favorite of chefs for its fine flavor.
