Lady Godiva Pumpkin was developed by Allan Stoner of the USDA Agricultural Research Service in 1972 for the hulless seeds as a snack food. He combined two other naked seed pumpkin lines for better flavor and production. The naked or hulless greenish seeds are very nutritious and rich in protein and are great roasted or raw. The pumpkins grow 4 - 10 lbs. Roasted, salted pumpkin seeds, also known as "Pepitas" are easy to make. Remove and clean the seeds, then drizzle with olive oil and roast on a cookie sheet in the oven at 150 - 200°F for 45 - 60 minutes until crunchy.  The flesh of the pumpkin is generally not eaten. These ornamental pumpkins are quite attractive, with yellow-orange rinds that are striped with green. Perfect for decoration.
