Mini white pumpkins are available in the fall.
Mini white pumpkins are a category of pumpkin that includes multiple varieties such as: Baby Boo, White Gooligan, and Casperita among others. Mini white pumpkins are botanically classified as gourds but because of their appearance for marketing purposes are sold as pumpkins.
Mini white pumpkins range in color from bright white to a creamy off-white hue. They tend to be about four inches in diameter and a perfect size for ornamental displays. The edible firm flesh is bright orange and has a sweet flavor, similar to that of an acorn squash.
The mini white pumpkin is ideal for holiday crafts and centerpieces. Add to holiday gift baskets along with mini Indian corn and colorful gourds. Mini white pumpkins can also be hollowed out to create a unique bowl and used for baking like a ramekin. Try stuffed with meat, rice or fall vegetables. Use as a serving bowl for soups and puddings.
Mini white pumpkins can grow in a wide range of soil types. To avoid a powdery mildew, do not grow them in an area where another cucurbit crop has been grown in the past two or three years. Mini white pumpkins do well on a trellis or fence due to their small size and trailing growth pattern.
