A true Jack-o'-lantern Pumpkin, Howden's Field Pumpkin is the industry standard for productive Pumpkin harvests. One terrific carving Pumpkin, it has long, productive vines and large, uniform fruits that grow up to 25 pounds. The fruits have attractive, deeply-ridged, resonant orange skin and wonderful dark green stem handles. Primarily a decorative Pumpkin, its baked flesh can also be used for pies and soups. 

Features.

Pumpkin is a plump, nutritious orange vegetable, and a highly nutrient dense food. It is low in calories but rich in vitamins and minerals, all of which are also in its seeds, leaves, and juices.  There are many ways to incorporate pumpkin into desserts, soups, salads, preserves, and even as a substitute for butter. The roasted seeds are delicious. It is very decorative with its bright orange skin.

Benefits.

Pumpkin has a range of fantastic benefits, including being one of the best-known sources of beta carotene. Just like their orange cousins, the carrot and the sweet potato. Beta carotene is a powerful antioxidant that gives orange vegetables and fruits their vibrant color. The body converts any ingested beta carotene into vitamin A. This helps your heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs stay healthy. 

Consuming foods with high volumes of beta carotene may have the following benefits of reducing the risk of developing certain types of cancer, offering protection against asthma and heart disease, decreasing the risk of age-related macular degeneration
