Volovski Macedonian Pumpkin

$4.00

These are the most interesting and versatile pumpkins we sell.  They have a delicious flesh that is nutty and bright orange/yellow.  The shell or skin of the pumpkin is almost a gourd like bowl so you can harvest the flesh and then use the bowl afterwards.  But the piece de resistance is that the seeds are naked seeds.  They can be eaten immediately because they don’t have a protective shell around the actual seed.  So yummy and a treat in the garden, you will need to stop yourself from planting it everywhere!

This seed was selected by Will Bonsall from the Scattered Seeds project and shared with Le Noyau farms.  Will has shared that the original seeds are from Macedonia, however, he is still doing research on the specific origins of the seeds.  We will keep you posted.
