DESCRIPTION

ORIGINAL and BEST pumpkins for Jack O'Lanterns! Excellent variety! Large spreading 10' vines produce heavy yields of 13- 16"W plump fruits weighing 20-25 lb; 1-2 per plant. The deep-round shape is far more uniform than its predecessor, Connecticut Field. Pumpkins have a rich, deep orange hard shell, good handles, defined ribs, and thick flesh. Excellent keeper and shipper. Superb for roasting seeds and making pies. Perfect choice for Commercial Production, Fresh Markets, Home Gardens.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

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.
