Seminole Pumpkin -- New Strain Available
The Back Story: A couple of years ago, Carol (Soonergrandmom) planted commercially-purchased seeds of Seminole Pumpkin, an heirloom winter squash originally grown in what is now Florida by the Seminole indians centuries ago. Her plants yielded extra-large fruit that looked similar to Seminole but were much longer. Even allowing for the fact that there is some shape and size variation within the Seminole pumpkin seed line, these were far beyond the sizes of Seminole pumpkins normally seen.
Now: While flipping through the newly-arrived 2014 catalog from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, I noticed that one of their new offerings for the coming growing season is a new strain of Seminole Pumpkin that produces larger fruit than the strain so many of us have grown in the past.
Carol, I thought of you and your gigantic Seminole pumpkins as soon as I saw this new listing in the catalog.
