Pumpkins come in a number of varieties. Every year when I see all the pumpkins on sale I always wish I would have grown them myself. And as always I say, “next year”. If you decide to take on growing pumpkins you will need a large enough garden to support them and a lot of sunshine. I have provided links with more information on growing and purchasing the most popular pumpkins for carving, cooking, and decorating.
The classic Jack O’ Lantern is the best pumpkin for carving and cooking. See growing details and purchasing info at Burpee Gardening
A beautiful white pumpkin for Fall Decor. This Lumina Pumpkin is great for carving too. Matures faster than the traditional Jack O’ Lantern. Growing details & purchase: Burpee Gardening
