Product Description

Ornamental Squash 'Rouge Vif D'Etampes'
Cucurbita maxima

Few pumpkins can rival the beauty of this flaming, orange-red French variety. Also known as the Cinderella pumpkin, these gems resemble the pumpkin that Cinderella's fairy godmother transformed into her carriage. Almost exclusively used as a decoration, the flavor of this pumpkin is mild and can be used for soup.

Plant type: annual
Spread: 6-8’
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 95-110 days
Plant spacing: 18-30”

Approx seeds per packet: 10

How to Grow: 
Squash dislike having their roots disturbed and do best when direct-sown. Plant seeds directly into the garden after all danger of frost has passed.

Harvesting/Vase Life: 
Harvest when fruit is fully mature and the stem attaching it to the vine begins to turn brown. Cut the stems with a knife or pruning shears rather than pulling fruits off the vine. Stems should be cut to 3-4 inches. If not used right away, cure for storage by setting in a warm, dry location for 1-2 weeks.
