Slovenska Golica Pumpkin is a pumpkin grown for its hull-less, dark green seeds, which are pressed into pumpkin oil.
The pumpkins are round, and orangey-yellow in colour with green mottled stripes.
The orange pumpkin flesh itself is pretty tasteless and not worth eating, but it can be fed to livestock, etc.
There is a semi-hollow cavity in the middle with many seeds.
The roasted seeds are also good as a snack seed.
The plant is a vining-type pumpkin, with long stalks and large, uneven leaves and yellow flowers.
Slovenska Golica Pumpkin was developed at Jurovski Dol in Slovenia.
“Oil pumpkin” in Slovenian is “oljna buča.”
