Pumpkin - Marina Di Chioggia



Heritage variety dating to the 17th century, it was brought back to Venice from the Americas, probably from more or less wild pumpkins found growing on the east coast and was crossed with a local variety and bred on from there. It has been cultivated in the Veneto region (Chioggia) for the last 300 years and is one of the oldest pumpkin culativars in Italy.

Organic Venetian Pumpkin 'Marina di Chioggia'. Old heirloom variety. A pain to peel but worth the effort for the good flavoured orange flesh. 

Sow: from February - June
