Giant pumpkin, similar to the Quintale pumpkin, but with a white streak absent in the latter. Originally from the upper Val Bormida, in the province of Savona, it was cultivated at the family level, in an area where agriculture is poorly developed. Used for soups and velvety creams, or fried or even for jam. Progressively abandoned, its cultivation has been relaunched by Slow Food Val Bormida, spreading it among the members, on the basis of seeds traced to an elderly farmer.
