I found great information about pumpkin varieties at    All About Pumpkins.  Two other sites with great info are Haunted Bay and Intervale Farm both have a great list showing a range in the varieties of pumpkins and squash.  Sometimes what we call a pumpkin is technically a squash.

Many times I will buy a variety of different ones, wash them, buff and polish them up with a little vaseline and then after they have been on display we will cook them up and eat them.

Would you like to see my favorites?

Thanks so much for the information on the pumpkins and squash. I have been looking for this information for along time.

We bought some squash mix and it produced, among others, a couple we never saw before. So I looked here and found it, I feel better it’s not a triffid. We LOVE patty pans and look for new colors etc since they popped out of a compost heap we had. This year the compost is producing, I think, zukes. Go figure. Squash are so much fun….on this street in the countryside of Saratoga Springs we have a neighbor who quietly produces multi-hundred pound Hubbards almost every year! My hero! 😎
Thanks for all you do!
Sincerely,
will shirley
