I absolutely love this pumpkin nad have several in my room. Does anyone know anything or have any experience growing them. I fully intend to buy the seeds for next year. I am curious if I could just save some seeds but I imagine this pumpkin is a hybrid. Does anyone know?

Googling didnt produce an answer on the hybrid question but did reveal the reason for that name..
"One-Too-Many" pumpkin, named for a pattern resembling the gin blossom and face-flush of a bloodshot drunk.

I just read in the Pinetree catalog that OTM is actually a winter squash that just looks like a punkin. So much the better in my opinion!

According to Thompson & Morgan, One Too Many is open-pollinated.
