Why did this Big Max turn green?

Why did this Big Max turn green with orange spots?

Not enough sun?

It doesn't seem to be rotting.

It'll make an interesting jack-o-lantern though.

But the other pumpkins went from pale yellow straight to orange.
This guy has been green for several weeks.

There's never a dull moment when growing pumpkins.

Maxima pumpkins like that are sometimes green. In the competitive pumpkin growing world they call them greenies or squash. I don't expect it to ever turn orange. It is nothing you did it is the genetics of the plant.
