Frank Brault


Avon, CT USA

We were at Walmart today and I saw these white pumpkins. I like to think of them as 'ghost pumpkins. I don't remember ever seeing a white pumpkin before. At my age you never say "I have never seen" only that you don't remember. :) I guess Halloween is coming.

Best viewed at original size.

Cool find. Are they genetically altering pumpkins. I don't ever remember seeing one either. :)

I saw them for the first time last year. I'm not sure, but isn't the orange part the beta carotene?

This is my first time hearing about or seeing white pumpkins. These would be great "ghost" pumpkins for Halloween!

Cute idea. That would be fun to carve. I have seen them before, but not often. Well seen!
