Seed Reviews:
Ornate Horticulture Society: this pumpkin has problems of pollination indeed sometimes the pumpkins are deformed and do not always have the desired shape and even the color.
P. Brown: I had the impression that it was not very well fertile, but very long foliage. I had fruit in the shape of a rugby ball as it should be, but also fruits round, here we have the same observation.

Golais
Very large, brilliant orange fruits are oblong, lightly ribbed. They do get large--60 pounds or larger is possible! Yet flavor and texture are not compromised. Makes great pumpkin pie. 120 days.
