Picking the best Pumpkin

Picking the best pumpkinWhen looking for picking the best Pumpkin to make a jack-o’-lantern, choose the one that will decay the slowest. Choose a pumpkin that is firm and has its stem intact. Squeezing the pumpkin can tell you how long it is going to sit on your porch, any soft spots and it will not last long. A strong stalwart stem indicates a healthy pumpkin. Pumpkins that were stressed for water or nutrients have a stem that is brittle and breaks off easily. Bottom line, steer away from soft spots and dry, skinny stems
