Category Archives: Pumpkin – Rouge Vif d ‘Etampes
Today we are planting in our garden our Cinderella Pumpkin start – Rouge Vif d ‘Etampes. This particular pumpkin is a beautiful French heirloom that first became available in the U.S. in 1883.
It is a deep orange pumpkin with pronounced ribs and is quite flat. It is very popular to eat in France where it is from and is used to make pumpkin soups.
