CUSHAW SQUASH: The green-striped cushaw is technically a winter squash though it also produces a spring harvest. It has a tender, pale orange or yellow flesh and is most often pureed and used for baking. It has a very mild flavor that can be overpowered if not careful.

 


APPRENTICE MINI PUMPKIN: The apprentice mini pumpkin is not quite a full-sized pumpkin which makes it great for crafters and school classrooms.

 

WHITE GHOST PUMPKIN: This pumpkin has a white skin and white flesh. It’s not good for eating, but perfect for a Jack-O-Lantern.

 


WHITE PUMPKIN: The white ghost pumpkin is perfect for decorating. You’ll love it since it’s ghost white!

 


UNCLE FESTER PUMPKIN: This pink to orange Pumpkin has markings that grow to look like peanuts. You may not want to take it out to the ball park, but it will fit in nicely when decorating for fall. It can also be used for baking, just peel and cut it into pieces before baking.

 


SWAN GOURDS: This gourd is dark green with cream flecks and is shaped just like a swan with a long, elegant neck. With their graceful form and alluring color, they are naturally ornamental and most often used as décor.

 


SUGAR PIE PUMPKIN: Sugar Pie pumpkins have very smooth textured, bright orange flesh. They are most often used in baking and have the finest flavor for making mouthwatering pies.

 


SPAGHETTI SQUASH: When raw, the flesh is solid and similar to other raw squash; when cooked, the flesh falls away from the fruit in ribbons or strands like spaghetti.
