Certified Biodynamic and Organic

HEIRLOOM Unique variety from the Styrian region of Austria. This medium-sized, green and golden striped pumpkin is grown for its seeds! The shelless seeds are large, green, and absolutely delicious eaten raw or toasted, and can be pressed for oil. Harvest these mostly green pumpkins when there is a little orange among the green on the skin. Let sit in shade for 2 weeks before harvesting the seeds. Crack open the fruits and extract seeds, rinse briefly in water and set on drying racks in the shade with a fan on constantly. Store when completely dry.

USES & COOKING SUGGESTIONS

Dried pumpkin seeds or pepitos can be used to top nearly any salad, soup, etc. These are a must for Lia’s favorite kale salad with finely chopped Judy’s kale, cooked and sliced Feuerkugel beets, finely grated Scarlet Nantes Improved carrot, kiwi, pepitos, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and a little herb salt. The flesh of this pumpkin is a great addition to livestock feed, chickens, pigs, cows, goats, sheep and horses all love it, but it also tastes good enough for the human table–it’s good simply roasted with a little butter and salt. The texture is somewhat coarse, like a spaghetti squash, with a very mild flavor. These pumpkins with their stripy skins make very special jack-o-lanterns too. We like to invite all the neighbors over in mid-October to help us scoop out the seeds and to make jack-o-lanterns to take home.
