I bought a nice big pumpkin to carve for Halloween. My son carved it and I am saving the seeds to plant next year. The pumpkin I grew in my garden is the tiny one on the table next the two gourds – also from my garden. Skippy was surprised and barked loudly at all the kids who dressed up as Elmo or a dinosaur and came to our door for candy tonight. Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin — Cucurbitaceae spp.

  • I think I remember reading somewhere almost all Holloween type pumpkins are F1 hybrids, with the possible exception of the Connecticut Field Pumpkin but yours doesn’t look like one of these to me.

    Of course there’s no reason you can plant the seeds next year if you want to, but whatever grows probably won’t be the same as your pumpkin this year.

  • Thanks. I think I’ll throw out the seeds and use the space for something more predictable.
