Pumpkin Varieties

Our domestic pumpkin crops are concentrated in Valencia and Ciudad Real. Among our annual pumpkin production volume, a significant percentage corresponds to traditional varieties. They are pumpkins grown from our own seeds that we select year after year, with two objectives: to produce better and better quality pumpkins and to contribute to the survival of traditional pumpkin varieties, with remarkable organoleptic qualities.
Traditional pumpkin varieties are more difficult to produce, generate added costs, fruit size is diverse and production is lower. However, it offers a firmer, more aromatic pulp with a higher level of natural sugar. For this reason, for its quality and its gastronomic and nutritional contributions, in Peris we bet year after year for the cultivation of pumpkins of traditional varieties, because this is what the biggest fans of this product ask us for.
