Lady Godiva Pumpkins are known for their plentiful, large pepitas without the normal tough seed coat. They produce vigorous vines and on average 6-10 green and orange striped fruits weighing between 5-8 lbs.
Once the seeds are cleaned and dried, they are good eaten fresh, toasted or roasted. This pumpkin's flesh is not prized for its culinary value.
Squashes and pumpkins are a part of the vast agricultural and culinary legacy of this continent, with indigenous seedkeepers in modern-day Mexico and Central America cultivating some types at least 10,000 years ago. Along with their sisters corn and beans, they spread throughout the western hemisphere through the loving care of Native Americans and by the time European colonizers arrived on the continent, many varieties of squash were being grown by farmers from the southwest to the northeast. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the original stewards of the nutrient-packed, long-keeping, healthy-seed-spawning miracle that is a squash!
