Sweet Pumpkin for cooking - Help!
So...I got 2 types of the SMALL sweet cooking pumpkins going in the garden. One is the "Sweet Pam" that I got from johnny seeds. The other I can't remember the name right now, it was from burpee, ferry morse or some other big company that you see in the stores.
Anyway...my problem is that they arn't small pumpkins! Does this make a differance in the taste? The first pumpkin fell off the vine because it got so heavy. I have them on a trellis since they supposed to be *small*. That one was already jack-o-lantern size - bigger than a basketball! I've got one on the ground (it's a vining monster...sheesh) that looks like it's going to be just as big also. It's currently as big as my head.
Anyway, so is it OK that these arn't small pumpkins, even though they are supposed to be? Does anyone know if they will be less sweet because of the size?
