Long Pie Pumpkin, two, heirloom


Two Long Pie Pumpkins weighing a total of six pounds, enough for a nice large pumpkin pie. This variety is said to have migrated in 1832 from the Isle of St. George in the Azores to Nantucket on a whaling ship whence it was picked up by various seedsmen and came north to Maine. Burpee offered it in 1888 as St. George. It was and remains highly esteemed as the best pumpkin for Yankee pumpkin pies. It was so widespread a couple of generations ago that many people who grew up on Maine farms never saw a round pumpkin before leaving home. For more info and recipes, see our Long Pie Pumpkin brochure. We also offer these Long Pie Pumpkins by the bushel.
