Pumpkins are fun and rewarding to grow. Some varieties are best for eating, others are grown for carving. If you want big pumpkins, only keep a few fruits growing and pinch off the rest.
Start indoors in early May or sow directly into the ground once the soil has warmed.
A few variety highlights:
Big Max: A carving pumpkin. Produces huge pumpkins. 105 days
Jack-o-Lantern: A good carving variety with firm, bright orange skin. Fine for eating too. Mid sized pumpkin, 100 days.
Small Sugar: sweet, bright orange flesh is perfect for pumpkin pies
Lumina: An eerily white skinned pumpkin - perfect for Halloween or Fall displays. 80 days
Musquee de Province: A dramatically ribbed variety. Fruits are up to 20 lbs. Delicious, sweet flesh and seeds are great roasted too
