In search of...BLUE pumpkins


Recommended Posts

While digesting my daily food blogs I came across this

Shuna is a huge talent.

I think the blue pumpkin is just something I have to make a few pies with.

Anyone see any? PA, DE, MD?

If you have please post. :blink:

Duffield's in Washington Twp (South Jersey) had 15 varieties, I believe one was blue. http://www.duffieldsfarm.com/

The Fair Food Farmstand has gray hubbards, which tend to be blue and are sometimes referred to as blue hubbards. Orange/creamy inside, not blue.

It's great for decorating a table, and the flesh is fine. But if you're planning on cooking or baking, I think you're better off with a neck pumpkin. Fine tasting, and lots of seedless and easily prepped meat.

In about 1985 didn't Sting come out with the album, "Dream of the Blue Pumpkins"?
