Unusual Pumpkin Varieties

Pumpkins and gourds are a staple of fall decorations outdoors and in my home so I am in the habit of purchasing a truck load of them.  This year was a little more extreme than usual because I came across so many interesting shapes, textures and colors.  Not only are there new hybrids, but many of the heirloom varieties of pumpkins are resurfacing. 

Because there are so many to choose from I couldn’t narrow down my selection!  By the time I made it home my car was completely loaded down with pumpkins.  Here are some of the interesting varieties I saw.
