Pumpkin - Dutch Fork

Cucurbita moschata

HEIRLOOM. An original Cherokee heirloom sometimes refered to as Old Timey Cornfield Pumpkin, Dutch Fork was once the premier pie pumpkin in much of the Carolinas. It has become extremely rare, and been stewarded by our grower, James Kibler, and a handful of folks in the Dutch Fork area of SC for the last 100 years. 10 – 20 lb deep lobed round pie pumpkin with rich, sweet flesh. Strong grower, excellent keeper.
