Cotton Candy Pumpkin

This is our first year growing Cotton Candy Pumpkin. I was intrigued by this variety because of it's true white skin and white flesh. The pumpkin should be picked when it turns white and kept out of the sun. The sun can cause yellowing of the skin. Because of it's white color and mild ribbing, it make a great canvas for painting pumpkins.

The pumpkins are small to medium size ranging from 5-12 pounds. They have sturdy handles compared to other white varieties. The flesh is sweet tasting.
