Wishing I would have been taking pictures all the way along.
The lil pumpkemon pumpkins (striped ones)
Well, see that one that's all green striped instead of orange in the back?
Yeah, about a week after picking, THEY ALL went that color. We were rather disappointed as that's not really what we wanted for our display (we keep the minis as our indoor decor each year).
Well, I brought a couple to work, and Talia kept a couple in her room, we tossed the rest. So, here, 2 months + after picking.
That green...is disappearing! They are going back orange? The white is getting a little yellowish tinge to it as well. I'm starting to think these might be more gourd than pumpkin, and this is part of the natural drying process.
I also took some of our mystery pumpkins and saved the seeds. Green and yellow minis 2 years ago to flat small pie sized orange ones this, who knows next...Theoretically, they were closest to the Pumpkemons this year, so maybe crossed with them?
