|'Autumnal Marrow' is an heirloom variety pumpkin which is excellent for areas where summer is short and relatively cool. Long vines produces ripe fruits by first frost, although it is generally considered a 100 day squash. Excellent for planting under corn. The squashes are thin-skinned and easily damaged, weighing 8-9 pounds, and either bright orange or bluish-pink.
Small pumpkins are grown for cooking and eating, while the larger sizes are for Jack-o'-lanterns and exhibition. Most Cooperative extension services will be able to tell you which varieties are best for your area. Pumpkins require a long growing season, so cooler areas will do better with smaller varieties.
