Eat Pumpkin on a stick?

nancylpAugust 21, 2010

I am growing Solanum integrifolium; Pumpkin on a stick; this year for the first time. currently many are ripening. I grew them mainly for decoration but since I have so many I was wondering if you can eat them. Have you eaten them?

thanks, Nancy

Thanks and I have done a lot of searching and have actually read that page.
I guess I was just hoping to find someone who has actually eaten them.

I have, I have. They're not bad. Some kinds are more bitter than others as they age. Basically, just an eggplant. Younger is better, as with any eggplant.

Thanks letting me know that someone has eaten them. I had read that I should let them ripen before eating and you're saying, denninmi, that maybe younger is better? Or let them turn red-orange but not harden? how did you fix them?
