Pumpkin Season at Matlack

September 28, 2023

Did you know we sell over 1 ½ dozen varieties of pumpkins here at Matlack?

Different types of pumpkins are useful for different things. The pumpkins we sell typically fall into two categories: carving and decorative.

Carving pumpkins typically have thinner skin and less fruit inside. This makes them not as easy to bake with, but the thin skin is easy to cut through. Although we wouldn’t recommend using carving pumpkins for your fall recipes, they are a great source of seeds for roasting!

Decorative pumpkins can be used for recipes but are often smaller or don’t taste as good as other varieties. They also come in vibrant colors or different shapes and are usually used in displays.

Pumpkins You’ll Find at Matlack

Most pumpkins you’ll find in a grocery store or home goods store are medium-sized carving pumpkins or small decorative pumpkins and gourds. Here at Matlack, we have unique pumpkins in all sizes, colors, and types to suit any style and fit all fall decorating needs. Read on to learn more about the many varieties of pumpkins we have in stock!
