I have cut open 3 of the fancy Galeux D’Eysines pumpkins. Something has gone horribly wrong, and I do not know what it is. Either way, I have no desire to eat them.
This is what I found when I cut it open.
The weirdest part is it is not moldy or soft. That texture is crystalline and hard. My best descriptor: Creepy as fuck. I can’t handle it.
Smaller pumpkin was similar. It’s more than I can handle. Took me 3 trips to the compost pile to get them out of my kitchen too. What a bummer!
