Rouge Vif d’Etampes or Cinderella Pumpkin is a French heirloom pumpkin variety. Flat reddish-orange fruits shaped like cheese round blocks. Sweet, delicious orange flesh. Great for pies and custards. Decorate with this pumpkin and then crack one open for cooking. Did you know that all pumpkins are edible? Some are tastier than others. This french classic is a staple for not only its looks but its great taste.
