Musquée de Provence, or Fairytale, a gorgeous French heirloom pumpkin grows to about 20 lbs. and is deeply ribbed.
Mottled forest green fruit will ripen to a rich bronze color with deep orange flesh. Rich, firm flesh of exceptional quality for cooking and baking; stores well.
Originated in the south of France, introduced to the US by Vaughan's Seed Store of Chicago in 1899.
In Provence, France, these pumpkins are sold by the slice - for eating. Cut from the middle like a wedge of cheese and sliced thinly, the flavor is complex, sweet with a light crunch.
