I have tried many years to grow the Rouge Vif d'Etampes. We call them Cinderella Pumpkins. Squash bugs get mine every year. Now I buy. I like having the different varieties for decoration and eating.
After October I will cook all of our pumpkins. I will roast the seed. We will have pumpkin soup and pumpkin muffins. One little pie pumpkin will be for Thanksgiving.
