Name: Pumpkin 'Solor'

 C. maxima

Origin:

  This is a nice, small pumpkin that is easy to grow. I find it annoying that the seed cavity is so large that there is only a little flesh, though it is very sweet and the flavour makes up for that.

The vine is smallish so would suit a smaller garden.

 

 When to sow: After risk of frost has passed in spring. Mid October to Christmas in Southern Australia. Sow directly where they are to grow, or sow into punnets and transplant when they are big enough to handle easily. Try not to damage the roots when transplanting.

 

Plant Type: Sprawling vine 

 

Uses: This is a very sweet and nice flavoured pumpkin that is great for pies and other pumpkin uses.
