Pumpkin

Indulge in the sweet, nutty flavour of our fresh pumpkin. These vibrant orange gourds are grown with care, resulting in a rich, creamy texture and a natural sweetness that elevates any dish. Perfect for soups, pies, and roasts, our pumpkins are a versatile addition to your kitchen. Try blending roasted pumpkin into a silky soup with a hint of nutmeg, or bake it into a classic pumpkin pie that’s sure to please. For a simple yet delicious side, roast pumpkin cubes with olive oil and your favourite spices.

Look for pumpkins that are firm and heavy for their size, with a consistent orange colour and a smooth, unblemished skin. Avoid pumpkins with soft spots, cracks, or any signs of mould. The stem should be intact and sturdy, as this indicates freshness. Tap the pumpkin gently – a hollow sound means it’s ripe and ready to use. Smaller pumpkins, often called sugar pumpkins, are ideal for cooking due to their sweeter, denser flesh.

Pumpkin can be enjoyed in a variety of delicious ways. For a hearty meal, make a creamy pumpkin soup by blending roasted pumpkin with broth and spices. Bake pumpkin into breads and muffins for a seasonal treat, or use it in risottos and pastas for a rich, comforting dish. You can also create a savoury pumpkin curry by cooking it with coconut milk and spices. For a sweet option, roast pumpkin seeds with a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar for a crunchy snack​​.
