Product Overview

Cucurbita maxima

A beautiful, flavorful, French pumpkin with vibrant, deep orange skin. This classic was inspiration for the coach in CinderellaÆs tale.

Popular in Paris in the 1880s, and introduced to the U.S. in 1883, this remarkable French heirloom, also known as 'Rouge Vif d'Étampes' ('vivid red of Étampes"), is deeply ridged, 12"–24" across, and weighs 15–20 pounds. It's a terrific decoration whether carved or not. Moderately sweet; perfect for baking and canning. The inspiration for the carriage in the charming fairy tale, your kids will be delighted to grow Cinderella's coach. Plants tolerate heat and humidity.
