Heirloom. This round to oblong pumpkin was bred for making Jack O’ Lanterns, but its flesh makes delicious pies, soups, and muffins, too. It weighs an average of about 7 to 10 pounds and has a deep orange color. Vines grow long, so give it plenty of room or save space by trellising and make a sling for the heavy fruit. It has a nice thick stem that makes a good handle for the top of your Jack O’ Lantern. Great source of vitamins A and C.
