Big or small, pumpkins are fun to grow and will be ready for fall.
Wee B Little Pumpkin
Give your garden a splash of cuteness with baseball size pumpkins. A 1999 All-America Selections winner, Wee B Little is well adapted throughout the US. Small fruits weigh from one-half to one pound and are the perfect size for small hands to hold. Fruits can be carved, cooked, or painted — this is one versatile vegetable. Vines have a semi-bush habit, so they don't require lots of room to roam in the garden. Pumpkins are a great source of vitamins A and C.
Heirloom. This round to oblong pumpkin was bred for making Jack O' Lanterns, but its flesh makes delicious pies, soups, and muffins, too. It weighs an average of about 7 to 10 pounds and has a deep orange color. Vines grow long, so give it plenty of room or save space by trellising and make a sling for the heavy fruit. It has a nice thick stem that makes a good handle for the top of your Jack O' Lantern. Great source of vitamins A and C.
