Tonda Padana Pumpkin - (Cucurbita maxima)

$3.35

The Tonda Padana Pumpkin is a beautiful Italian pumpkin from the Po River Valley with alternating vertical ribs of grey, green and orange.

Wonderful dry, sweet flesh is superior for making pies, great soups, gnocchi, and breads. Unusual and attractive enough to be used as a centerpiece.

Growing tips:

Squash seeds dislike cold soil. It's better to wait until the soil is warm to plant the seeds.

Also, squash and melons don't like to have their roots disturbed, so when thinning out seedlings in hills, cut the stems of those you want to remove, rather than pulling them out.
