This snazzy heirloom pumpkin is not one for change. Tried and true, the Connecticut Field Pumpkin can claim to be a time-tested classic for over two hundred years. Large, globular shape, with smooth orange skin, is best known for gracing front porches in style. One plant yields a half-dozen fruits; give the vines plenty of space to stretch.
Plant Information
Cultivated by the North American Indians before the Europeans came to America, the Connecticut Field pumpkin is one of the oldest field pumpkins in existence. Its large size, nearly perfect shape, sturdy nature, and picturesque orange color make it the quintessential ornamental pumpkin for autumn and Halloween. Yes, many a Jack-o-lantern has come to life on the smooth surface of one of these pumpkins, their smooth, shallowly ribbed, tender shells making carving quick and easy. Connecticut Field pumpkins are quite the show-offs, reaching diameters up to 20 inches and weighing in at 15-25 pounds when mature. Although their flesh and pulp are not ideal for baking, their seeds are sensational for roasting. To help with longevity, be sure to harvest them with their stems still intact.
