Pumpkin "Marina di Chioggia".
This unique Italian heirloom variety, rich in vitamin A, bears large, turban-shaped fruits with thick, knobbly skin and sweet yellow-orange flesh.
Its excellent flavour improves markedly with storage.

* "Marina di Chioggia" is one of the most beautiful and unique pumpkins.
The Italians consider this variety to be the heritage of the sea and have nicknamed it "Sea Monster".
After all, Chioggio is a small town in northern Italy in the Veneto region not far from Venice, consisting of three islands connected by canals and bridges.
The inhabitants of Chioggia have always been engaged in fishing, every day, despite the dangers, they won food from the sea.
Interestingly, 700 meters from Chioggia, across the bay, is the village of Sottomarina.
In this village, people have long been engaged in crop production and for many years they grew this now famous pumpkin there.
The bridge between Chioggia and Sottomarina was built only in the twenties of the last century.
And only when the pumpkin began to be grown in Kyoja - only then did it get its current name.
The Italians plant seeds in March, the fruits begin to be harvested in June.
In our country, when planting at the end of May, the fruits begin to reach technical ripeness at the end of August.
Maximum specimens grow up to 10 kg. Plucked in time, they are well stored until spring.
Plants are very vigorous, respond well to fertilized soil and regular watering.
This pumpkin is also very decorative. Italians have a tradition of keeping a pumpkin in the house as a hope for happiness and abundance,
which is associated with a large number of seeds - a symbol of fertility.
200 grams of pumpkin per day is enough to meet the daily needs of our body.
Due to the low calorie content and high fiber content, which is well digested and easily digested,
eating pumpkin can make up a weight loss diet (provided moderate use of seasonings).
They cook it with rice, cheese, sausage, mushrooms and spinach, make creams, soups, a delicious dessert from it,
boiled or cooked in the oven and sweetened, or simply bake pies with it.
