Rhea pumpkin makes a great compliment to its larger brother Cronus. Large vines, which have intermediate resistance to powdery mildew, produce good yields of 20 to 30 lb. pumpkins. The fruit have a flat-round shape, a rich dark orange color, and strong, thick, dark green stems. Rhea has well defined ribs, great eye-appeal and excellent uniformity for shape. This pumpkin variety is a hit for roadside stand or wholesale sales.
