"Algonquin" Pumpkin Seeds
Algonquin Pumpkin (cucurbita pepo) is an extremely rare type of pumpkin that has been grown by the Algonquin people for well over a century. This pumpkin is my favorite to grow and eat! Super sweet flesh and a nice size for storing and processing. Ranging in size from 8-20+ inches with a nice oblong form. (It will look like a zucchini for most of the season, but don't be alarmed-it will ripen into a beautiful orange pumpkin in the fall!) They are ripe when they start to turn orange, and will continue to ripen in storage, getting sweeter and sweeter. (you may also pick them green and they will ripen in storage) Great for making pies and other baked goods! As with most native heritage types, their genetic diversity allows them to be extremely adaptive, vigorous and hardy.
