Exceptional pumpkin for carving. It was intentionally bred to produce a pumpkin the size of a man's head. Round to slightly oblong, 10" diameter, 18-24 lb. fruits with shallow ribbed, bright orange rind. Sturdy stem. Firm, sweet, thick flesh makes delicious soups, pies, muffins, casseroles and many other nutritious dishes. In great demand for Halloween Jack O'Lantern markets.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
