AG Question?

Farm_Man(PA)July 12, 2005

Are AG pumpkins supposed to grow yellow? I had a lot of rain the other day from the hurricane remnants in SE PA , so I figured it was going to abort the yellow pumpkins from too much water, but to my surprise the pumpkin apparently got pollinated and has since grown to almost softball size(12 in circumfrence). Now all of the pumpkins on the plants are yellow? Are these really supposed to be yellow like this? Thanks.

Yes. They seem to vary from white to yellow, when small. It seems that the darker yellow they are, when young, the darker orange they are at maturity.

thanks, i was worried about this. Is this also true with other large varieties such as big max or prize winners?

My Prizewinner fruit this year was yellow at first. I believe this is the case for all C. Maxima pumpkins.
