Pumpkin of the week: Small Sugar
Posted 24 August 2019
It’s no secret, we have a passion for pumpkins. Not just perfectly shaped, uniform pumpkins, but the unusual and hard to find too. Yup, we love them all!
We would like to share this passion with you so we are introducing our “Pumpkin of the Week”.
Each week we will be featuring a different pumpkin or pumpkin “family”, so you can share in our excitement and learn a little bit more about some of the many varieties we grow here on the farm.
August 23, 2019: “Small Sugar”
The Small Sugar pumpkin is an heirloom pie pumpkin with very smooth bright orange flesh that has excellent flavor.
It is about 7 pounds in size, but does vary a little in size and shape; most are round and slightly flattened, deep orange with shallow ribbing.
This small pumpkin is a hit with kids and parents alike. The kids can carry their own pumpkin from the patch and if you fancy a homemade pumpkin pie, you can dig right in!
