Color Me Pumpkin

Pumpkins are orange.......... everybody knows that. But they come in lots of other colors too. You can find pumpkins that are green, yellow, red, white, blue, even tan. So, pumpkin lovers like you and me have lots of variety to choose from. What's your favorite pumpkin colors?




Pictured above are the typical Orange Jack O'Lanterns that you and I think about when we think of pumpkins. There are a couple hundred varieties of orange Jack O'Lanterns.




When a Jack O'Lantern pumpkin is unripe, it is green. Some varieties are a pale green, while others are a dark green.




An unripe giant pumpkin begins life a bright yellow color. As it grows, it gradually turns a pale yellow, and finally some shade of orange. There is also a variety that ripens to yellow.




Pictured above is a somewhat uncommon white pumpkin. There are both Jack O'Lantern and miniature white pumpkin varieties.  Casper and Baby Boo are the most common varieties. They are a really novel pumpkin to place on your front porch, and draw the attention of neighbors and passersby.




If you want really a rare pumpkin, try growing a Blue Pumpkin. They are often referred to as Australian Blue Pumpkins, or Jaradale. More closely resembling a Turban squash than a true pumpkin, they are smaller and flatter than a Jack O'Lantern ,with a bluish grey color. If you display one of these in your Fall or Halloween display, it will surely be noticed.

Color me Red Yes, there truely are red pumpkins. In the picture above, the red pumpkin front and center. The best known yet hard to find  variety is "Rouge D'Etant". There is also a variety called "Cinderella".

Tan pumpkins are the kind that commercial food processors use when making canned pumpkin puree. Very few homeowners grow them. Again, no picture.....yet.
