Galeux d’Eysines

warty heirloom pumpkin aka Galeux d’Eysines

this week’s Hallowe’en themed findin’ fridays¬†entry is sort of a gardener’s find: “oooh, what a neat (fill in the blank) let’s buy the seeds and try it!!”

after two seasons of struggling to grow this darned thing, we finally got a crop. small, but there. yeah, we were not really babysitting our pumpkin patch that well this year, sigh.

verdict? eh. maybe we’ll try again next year, but the flavour, supposedly the best, sweetest pumpkin of all, doesn’t compare even to the Marina di Chioggia or Uchiki Kuri that we’d grown (successfully) before.

maybe it’ll get another chance. maybe not.
