Sometimes referred to as "Peanut Pumpkin", this French heirloom pumpkin has the best texture for pumpkin pies with its delicate flavour and high sugar content at maturity. The flesh is bright orange while the skin is a salmon pink colour with peanut-like warts. These warts are due to the sugars swelling in the skins and a good sign of the flavour inside!
