One to put on the mainstay list
I got Padana as part of the mixed pumpkin and squash box and it's an absolute star. In the coolest summer for years in Ireland, when the thermometer barely reached 20C it produced a good crop of 3kg fruits. Because the weather was so bad not all of them ripened properly - we ate the unripe ones first - but the ones that did ripen are still perfect in mid-February. I grow all my pumpkins out of doors on the compost heap and this made vines up to 4m long that climbed over everything in sight. The foliage is good too for Bengali style stir fries and the flowers were perfect in all those stuffed flower dishes and tempura. Very dense sweet flesh it makes great soups, pies, risotto and squash and ginger jam. Treat small fruits like Tondo di Nizza
