Pumpkin of the week #3: Porcelain Doll

Posted 07 September 2019

This pink pumpkin – yes pink – has very thick sweet flesh, is medium sized, blocky and deeply ribbed. It is surprisingly heavy for it’s size, weighing in at about 20 pounds!

You might not want to carve it, because the flesh is so thick, but it is a very pretty colour for any fall display and the sweet flesh can be used for both pies and soups.

About McNab’s Pumpkin of the Week

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.
