Lady Godiva Pumpkins

Lady Godiva Pumpkins are grown only for their seeds, which are hull-less.

They are squat, with green markings on a yellowish background. If left too long before harvesting, the green stripes will fade. They will weigh about 6 pounds (2.7 kg.)

The pale flesh is not good eating; it is very stringy. The hull-less seeds, though, are good for eating. They are large, about three times the size of hulled sunflower seeds. 1 bushel of its seeds will weigh about 43 pounds.

The pumpkins grow on a vine that stretches 10 to 20 feet (3 to 6 metres.)

110 days from seed.

History Notes

Lady Godiva Pumpkins were developed by Allan K. Stoner of United States Department of Agriculture (USDA); they were released commercially in 1972.

The pumpkin was one of the first hulless-seed varieties to take off commercially in America.
