A grey hybrid pumpkin with a semi-bush growth habit.
Early maturity 90 days in summer, 100 - 110 days in cool winters. Grey pumpkins should only be harvested once the fruit stems develop cork-like cracks and loose most of their green colour. This allows full flesh colour development.
Semi-bush growth habit. Can be planted up to 7,000 plants per hectare. Quick maturing.
Large, deep-flat, grey fruit. Average weight of 6kg with slight ribbing. Thin skin with minimal greening. Small seed cavity, thick shoulder flesh and small blossom-end scar. Very good size to weight ratio. Deep orange flesh, thick and very firm. Not suited to long-term storage.
Intermediate resistance to powdery mildew and ZYMV.
