The New England Sugar Pie Pumpkin dates back to 1863 or earlier. It grows 4-5 lbs., a nice size for baking. Wonderful for pies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, etc. I froze many pint bags and have been told that the pumpkin bread I bake from the New England Sugar Pie Pumpkin is the best ever tasted! We grew it organically with no problems.
