Tours Pumpkin Seeds (Cucurbita pepo), (aka Citrouille de Touraine, French Tours) . A historic French field pumpkin, named for its place of origin and listed by Vilmorin as early as 1856. Tours pumpkin, a unique French heirloom. Its tall upright-shaped fruit is dark green and has light yellow-orange stripes that run from the top to the bottom. Tours fruit has a diameter of 10 to 14", stands 12 to 18" tall, and has a contrasting light green stem that is hard and firmly attached.

Prepare the bed or the hill with compost or aged manure, direct-seed the seeds, and choose two or three seedlings from the hill. For rows, plant one plant every 3 feet. Keep weeded and watered. Harvest pumpkins at maturity (they go from green to striped orange/green) or right soon after the first frost. Cut open and scoop out seeds and membrane onto a screen. Using your hands, work until the seeds are free of spaghetti. It is usually best not to use water. Spread the seeds out on paper plates to dry, stirring several times per day until the seeds are dry. Store in paper bags.
