Details

Also known as Cinderella. A very old French Heirloom, this was the most common pumpkin in the Central Market in Paris back in the 1880s. "Rouge vif" means "vivid red" in French. This stunning scarlet pumpkin is what the artist who drew Cinderella's coach used as a model. The pumpkins are slightly flattened, heavily ribbed and make wonderful autumn displays. The moderately sweet flesh is tasty in pies or baked.
