Heirloom Pumpkins

Antique Beauties ~ Not all pumpkins are created equal. Heirloom pumpkins differ in sizes, shapes, textures and unlikely colors like salmon, blue-grey and green.

 

Heirloom pumpkins and squash are the fruits of plants from generations-old varieties of seed, sometimes passed down within a family. From that modest beginning, these heirloom veggies are the superstars of the fresh-produce aisle, appearing on the menus of chic restaurants and in glossy food magazines.
