Here is the Jack O' Lantern Pumpkin, Cucurbita maximais. This is the pumpkin that you see every Halloween an makes a great carving pumpkin! The seeds are great for roasting an the rind can be made into pie or soup though its not as sweet as pie pumpkins you will need to add sugar. Can get to 2 feet around and 25 Lbs in weight and are orange in color with that classic Halloween pumpkin shape! This is also the preferred variety used in pumpkin carving contest. The vines can get to 20 feet long but are susceptible to powdery mildew. We like to use them for Halloween displays and making pie if we dont carve it. Open pollinated 110 days.
