Dobies - Pumpkin Gold Speck F1

Dobies very kindly sent me a pack of Pumpkin Gold Speck F1 that have been added to their catalogue for 2024. 

Average pack contents 4 seeds for a price of £3.99 so that's £1 a seed. 

The web site states that they are one of the most high yielding mini types of pumpkin with masses of scalloped fruit with long handles that are great for eating and Halloween!

These colourful little pumpkins measure just 7.5cm (3”) diameter, 5cm (2”) deep and weigh in at 150-250g, making them perfect for a tasty snack or serving in individual portions. 

Just scoop out the centre, steam or bake, then refill the skins with the flesh smothered with butter or brown sugar. The hollowed-out shells also make unusual serving bowls for delicious pumpkin soup. 

Pumpkin 'Gold Speck' is an easy-to-grow bush type which takes up much less space than vining varieties. Excellent disease resistance including powdery mildew. 

Height: 60cm (24in). Spread: 80cm (31in).

As they are a bush type I may have to find somewhere to plant and trial these this year.
