PUMPKIN: The name pumpkin originated from the Greek word for "large melon" which is "pepon." Pumpkins are grown all around the world for a variety of reasons ranging from agricultural purposes to commercial and ornamental sales. Pumpkins are very versatile in their uses for cooking, from the fleshy shell, to the seeds, to even the flowers; most parts of the pumpkin are edible. Traditionally, pumpkin is a very popular Halloween and Thanksgiving staple.
Cotton Candy Pumpkin: This white pumpkin really stands out from the crowd. Cotton candy produces very white pumpkins, with true pumpkin shape and sturdy handles. Much better than previous white pumpkins. Weight ranges between 5-12 lbs. These pumpkins should be picked when white and put out of the sun to maintain their colour.
