Peanut Crown Pumpkin

French growers say "Potiron Galeux d'Eysines" (Gd'E) and fruits look like this:
Although it was originally bred as a crown pumpkin (like Turk's Turban) some centuries ago, here's no crown anymore, because growers select to have only warty lingerie...since the name Gd'E just means warty one form Eysines (Girondes, Bordeaux).
Also the whole world seems to dislike the old crown around the blossom end and that nice bonnet in it, we love this virtue!
Therefore we simply name our breeding-line of the Gd'E "Peanut Crown Pumpkin".

fodder for dinosaurs

Next year I will crossbreed my Gd´E or Peanut Crown with that attractive fodder for dinosaurs: a stretto bred 1385.5 Jutras 07 (via 1172 Singleton 09) still growing now to become the ... Ammer 14
It´s just a try...

RE: Peanut Crown Pumpkin

Harvested very healthy seed of that nice giant, which now is the 612 Ammer 14.
Only 1% empty, not developed or sick seed.
I do not fatten pumpkins, because I must have the best seed quality.

RE: Peanut Crown Pumpkin

Both of those are beautiful pumpkins, your golden rod make a nice ascent will you have seeds of both available in the seed swap? I would be interested in both??
