A highly decorative squash with "peanut" warts that also makes for delicious eating.
This heirloom's lovely French name translates, prettily enough, as "embroidered with warts from Eysines," that being a small town in southwest France. This pumpkin's random "peanut" warts bedeck the flesh-colored outer skin. A unique decorative piece, to be sure, but also a richly flavored eating pumpkin. Harvest the 10-20 lb. fruits are mature in about 90 days.

How to Sow
Sow in fertile, warm soil after danger of frost has passed.
Sow seeds directly in the garden.
Give large-fruited pumpkins plenty of room to ramble.
For improved drainage sow in mounds, or hills, of soil 12 inches in diameter, 6-8 inches tall.
Sow 4-6 seeds in groups about 3 inches apart. Each group should be about 4-6 feet apart. Cover with 1 inch of fine soil and firm lightly.
Keep evenly moist.
Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days.
Do not plant pumpkins and other squash family crops in the same spot 2 years in a row.
How to Grow
Thin seedlings to 2-3 per group when they are 1-2 inches high
Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating.
Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1-2 inches of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It's best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
Pumpkins have both male and female flowers on the same plant. Male flowers will open first and the female flowers will open later. The female flower has a miniature fruit behind the blossom.
Do not move or step on vines as they are quite fragile.
Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
If you are trying to grow extra-large pumpkins, allow only one fruit per plant to mature.
Beds of vigorous, sprawling pumpkin vines can be bordered by corn, towering pole beans, sunflowers and other trellised or vine vegetables.
Harvest & Preserving
Pumpkins are ready to harvest when the rinds are hard and a rich shade of orange or white depending on the variety.
If a light frost kills the vines, the pumpkins are ready to harvest. Pumpkins are damaged by heavy frost.
Cut pumpkins from the vine with a pruning shears, leaving about 3 inches of stem attached.
Allow the pumpkins to cure in the sun for a week to harden skin.
Store pumpkins in a cool dry place.
Roast the seeds for a tasty snack.

Beautiful and deliciousAlong with Musquee de Provence we grow Galeux every year. Both varieties are delicious as well as beautiful. The flesh of Glaeux is especially thick, dry and yummy. The exterior is pinkish. Warts continue to develop after cutting, so I take them before they are completely covered.

Prize winner!My husband and I raised several different ornamental pumpkins this year as something different than the traditional orange. What a treat! This pumpkin was a good producer with pumpkins from 10-20 lbs. We entered a medium sized sample, on the local county fair, in the ornamental pumpkin category. It got a first prize blue ribbon. It's competitors were samples of porcelain doll,. Jarradale, Musquee de Provence, and Knuckle Head. They may describe it as peanut warts but I think it's more lacey looking from a distance and perfect as an ornamental eye catcher!
