What is a mini pumpkin?

RoseWolfie(9b central florida)October 24, 2012

I see them everywhere, but I cannot find out a single thing on them. Are they really pumpkins? Are they edible? What species are they? Are there varieties? Where can I get seeds?

I was on google for last 2 hours, nothing. So any information is great!

Mini- pumpkins are just that. Small pumpkins that that are less than two lbs in size. Edible, but used mostly for decorations. Not the most palatable. They are are for the most part C. pepo. Varieties include: Jack-B- Quick, Jack-B-Little, WeeeeeOne, Baby Boo, Lil Ironsides, Hooligan, Crunchkin, Apprentice, Bumpkin, Lil Orange Mon, Lil Pump-Ke-Mon, Munchkin, Wee-Be-Little etc. Harris Seeds has a good selection.
