Connecticut Field Pumpkin
A popular pumpkin variety for carving and baking, known as Southern Field, Big Tom, Large Yellow and Halloween. This is what comes to mind when you think “pumpkin”.
Fruit is medium orange to yellow-orange in color, 10-14” tall and 12-15”’ in diameter. Weight averages 15-25 lbs with a smooth, hard slightly-ribbed thin bright rind. The flesh is deep-yellow to lightly orange, coarse and sweet.
The yellow or orange flesh is cooked as a sweet vegetable or enjoyed as a soup. Diced pumpkin may be sprinkled with cheese and olive oil and grilled au gratin in a hot oven. Pumpkin is also used as a sweet pie filling or as holiday decorations.
