Penobscot pumpkin

$5.00

The Penobscot is a gifted seed from Fred Wiseman and the Seeds of renewal project in Vermont.  It is similar to a zucchini in the way it grows around the crown base of the plant.  The summer squash is delicious in pies and soups and really goes well with any spice that you add to it, almost magnifying the flavour.  Very rare and delicious plant.

Planter

Cucumber beetles, squash bugs, and vine borers are all common pests for cucurbits. Protect young plants with floating row cover. Squash bug eggs found on the undersides of leaves may be crushed by hand. For vine borers, cut out of vines and hill soil over the wound. Keep field borders mowed and remove plant refuse in the fall; spring plow to bury pupae. C. moschata types are less susceptible to vine borers. Pyrethrin sprays may offer some control.
