Hi Everyone,

Last year, I had some pumpkin seeds for my birthday. They carry the name Connecticut Field Orange to be precise. The big question is: can you eat those? Because it is not written on the package and I want to be sure about this, before I am going to try all these nice recipies and poisoning my family. I tried to find out by searching on the internet, but all the information I got is that some are grown to eat and some are grown for decoration. So I was hoping that there is someone on the forum, who is more familiar with the Connecticut Field orange. On the picture they look like the pumpkins that are used for decoration with halloween. The plant is probably going to be 3 to 4 meters long and the weight of a pumpkin is going to be 7-12 kilo's. Thanks for helping.

I'm sure there are others who are better acquainted with Connecticut Field pumpkins, but we used to grow them when I was a child and we made pumpkin pie from them.

You won't poison anyone by feeding them a pumpkin, Zephyros. Some cultivars are really intended for Jack-o'-Lantern carving, so they tend to be larger, tougher, and on the stringy side. All are edible, though, providing you strain the cooked pumpkin flesh to get the strings out.

The seed is also edible. Just wash them really good, toss with a bit of oil, add salt and bake them. Great crunchy snack.

Thanks for the information. Although I might not poison them, you can't be to carefull with certain plants. For example, you can't eat the leaves of a potato plant, but the roots are quit nice (I mean, who doensn't like chips?). I hadn't tought about pumpkin pie, but it sounds worthwhile to try in autum.
