First gained fame when it made its appearance in Parisian open markets in the 1800's. A French heirloom that is said to be the model for Cinderella's pumpkin coach! Dramatic fruits, about 15 inches across, with almost luminous reddish-orange skin that looks stunning in autumn decorations. Thick, rich flesh is well-suited to pies, and 15 ft. vines produce numerous fruits averaging about 25 lbs. each.
