Cinderella Pumpkins are a unique French heirloom whose correct name is “Rouge vif D’Etampes.” They resemble the pumpkin that Cinderella’s fairy godmother transformed into a carriage. This pumpkin is recorded as having been the variety cultivated by the Pilgrims and served at the second Thanksgiving dinner. There is something magical about them. Cinderellas make a delightful decorative accent for the fall season, but additionally their flavor is good for any pie or winter squash recipe.
