Choosing a Pumpkin for Decorating or Carving

To find the perfect Jack ‘o Lantern pumpkin, choose one that is large and heavy with a flat bottom. The flesh should be firm and free of soft spots, cuts or bruises, with the stem well-attached. Keep it in a cool, dry spot, avoiding frost. Outside under a covered porch is ideal, but rest the pumpkin on a wooden surface. Avoid storing it directly on cement or metal.

Choosing a Pumpkin for Pumpkin Pie or other Desserts

Smaller sugar pumpkins are also called pie pumpkins because they are a sweeter variety cultivated for eating. They are smaller than decorating pumpkins, usually 6-10 inches in diameter. They are less stringy, fleshier, and less watery with a smoother texture than decorative pumpkins. If you plan to make a dessert with pumpkin, be sure to ask for sugar pumpkins. As with decorating pumpkins, choose a firm pumpkin with no soft spots or signs of rot.

Fall Decorating

The uncommon white lumina pumpkin makes a striking addition to your Halloween decor. Gourds are
not edible but are used for fall decorating.

Pumpkins are very nutritious. They’re full of vitamin C, A, fibre, and antioxidants that protect against cancer and heart disease.
