Pumpkin, Long Pie #3322 CO1
95 days Also known as Nantucket Pie Pumpkin. This variety dates back to at least 1832, when it was grown in Maine. The 5 - 8 pound fruits are picked anytime after they begin to change color to orange; they will ripen successfully in storage. Makes the most amazing pies! Fruits look like overgrown zucchinis to the uninitiated, but the telltale sign is an orange spot where the otherwise all - green elongated fruit rested on the ground. In storage, the whole fruit first blushes, then glows bright orange, signaling that its delicious flesh is ready. One of the best for continued ripening after picking, Long Pie stored at 50° keeps all winter. Germinates poorly in cold soil.
