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?
