(Curcubita ‘Golden Nugget’)
Great pumpkin for growing in limited spaces. The bush produces an ample crop of small to medium orange fruit with a great nutty flavour.
Pumpkins have a sweet flavour that partners well with softer herbs like parsley, lemon thyme, chervil and celery leaf. Baked with celeriac enhances both vegetables.
