Qesem

Cucurbita pepo, Pumpkin Group
Halloween-type pumpkin

These pumpkins are well-adapted for carving. The fruit are fairly large, 8-10 kg. (18-22 lbs.). Ranging from spherical to globular to nearly oblate, deep orange, with a black-green, firm, strong, but not too thick peduncle (“handle”). Qesem appears almost magical in the field as the plants are semi-bush and the fruits set early, near the crown of the plant; and hence are placed near the center of the row for easy field management and harvest.
