Ten years of pumpkin trials keeps leading us back to you, Winter Luxury. If we’re being honest, the crew at Deep Harvest are pumpkinskeptics, knowing the shockingly rich, and intriguing flavors available in buttercup and butternut squash. Pumpkins generally can’t compare, but you somehow distinguish yourself from the watery texture and bland flavors of your peers. Your silky, sweet, dense flesh and golden fruits under that distinguished white netting was first introduced by Johnson Stokes in 1893 and has been enjoyed by pie bakers ever since.
