A new product - spaghetti pumpkins!

Italy: 2013/14 pumpkin campaign started at Azienda Abbondanza

The 2013/14 pumpkin campaign has started at Azienda Agricola Abbondanza Alfredo
The company is located in Tursi (Basilicata), an area with the ideal climate for the vegetative cycle of pumpkins.

In addition to having increased their production - reaching 2,000 tons (1,600 tons of "Mosquée de Provence" and 400 tons of "Lunga di Napoli") - 2013 is also the year of "spaghetti pumpkins" (in the photo).

On the inside, this variety looks like a ball of spaghetti. It is cut into two and boiled for 10 minutes, then it is served on a plate just like as if it were pasta.

"Halloween is in a few days' time so just imagine the scene Mosquée de Provence pumpkins would create," says Alfredo Abbondanza, owner of the company.

Round oblong pumpkins have a red flesh ideal for different types of pasta (pumpkin tortellini, tagliatelle and scialatelli) as well as for a number of local dishes.

"Our produce is harvested, stored in our warehouses and is then sold to our clients in Italy (Milan, Padua, Rimini, Pescara and Naples), so you can find us in retailing."

Azienda Agricola Abbondanza Alfredo has the GlobalGAP certification.
