'Crown Prince' is a silver-blue skinned pumpkin which always does very well in taste trials. So many of you have recommended this variety, we have put it back into the catalogue. They remind me of sweet potatoes in taste. It also stores well.

Genus Cucurbita maxima
Variety Crown Prince
Type Half-hardy Annual
Common Name Pumpkin
Soil Type Fertile
Site Full Sun, Shelter
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Spacing 60-90cm (24-36in) apart with 1m (39in) between rows
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover in late March. Soak the seed overnight, then sow 2.5cm vertically, one to a 9cm pot. The seeds are large and may rot off before they germinate if sown flat. Once they have 5 or 6 leaves, they're ready to go out. Harden them off by standing them outside during the day and then plant them out once the frosts are over. You can also sow them direct into the ground from April-May outside if you wait until after the frosts.
Care Tips Water well, and avoid the plant becoming dry. Mulch well. Dig in plenty of manure before planting.
Storing Store throughout the winter in a place with good air circulation. For best results, hang in an onion bag.
Harvesting July - October, at about 10-12cm diameter
Cooking Notes Brilliant for soups and roasted in the oven. The seeds make excellent Pumpkin seed and cinnamon brittle.
