Pumpkins have been cultivated for centuries by Central and North American tribes. This delicious variety has a bright orange slightly ribbed skin, an orange flesh with a smoother more fine-grained texture. The small sugar pumpkin is bred for its naturally high sugar content which ensures a wonderfully sweet taste. Delicious for savoury pies, soups and roasting. The 1.5 to 2kg fruits are a practical size to grow and cook.
