Pumpkin Names

Pumpkin Goliath

Ah!! The blessed moment has finally arrived!! You have carefully pollinated your female pumpkin and a tiny baby fruit is beginning to grow! It is time to pour through this list of pumpkin names, and select the perfect one for your baby.

Selection of a name should not be taken likely. It is a healthy part of the bonding process between grower/parent and fruit. It has been scientifically proven that baby pumpkins will respond to the name you have selected and tend to take on the characteristics of the name. Never, for example, name your baby “Slim”.

Here is a helpful guide to naming your baby pumpkin . While we have presented this in a light-hearted fashion, we do encourage others to name their fruit. It’s all part of the fun and enjoyment of growing “The Big One!”

I’ve already picked my choices for next year. I have seeds from a 1,000 pound parent, who is beautifully round with a good orange color. I am planning to buy seeds from the biggest genetics I can. They tend to be ugly. The names? You guessed it: “Beauty” and “The Beast”.
