So... This evening on the way home from work, Vernon wanted to stop at the hobby store in the mall to pick up something he needed. On one edge of the parking lot was the farmer's market. It was the last market of the season and the vendors were willing to deal. I didn't need anything... really... But I couldn't resist this pumpkin !
Isn't it awesome! I asked and the variety is 'One Too Many' also sometimes called the bloodshot eyeball pumpkin - with good reason.
Research says that it is edible and makes good soup. I'll have to see. I don't think I have the heart to carve it for Halloween.
I'll definitely be saving seeds! From what I found it is an open pollinated variety so again, we'll see what happens next year.
