Galeux d’Eysines Pumpkins

galeux pumpkinWe have only got a few of these warty offerings for sale; I think they will appeal more to the pumpkin carvers who want to do something different but they are in fact one of the very best varieties for eating.

The salmon coloured skin develops peanut like nodes as the sugar content builds in the ripening process. The more bumps, the greater the sugar content and the sweeter the squash.

Galeux D’ Eysines squash has a sweet flavor, with a smooth velvety texture free from the fibrous strings predominant in many squash varieties. The bright orange flesh is nutty, sweet, firm making it perfect for pies, steaming, baking, roasting, soups and more.

Galeux d’Eysines are generally weigh in at between 5 and 10kg.
