I don't know if you have found yours or not, but I got mine at our local wal-mart for .97.

Nice white pumpkins are "Lumina" or "Casper". Both are about volleyball or basketball size. I get my seeds at either WalMart or the local Ace Hardware. You can order them online just type their names in Google.

I bought some last year at the True Value Harware store, or Jung's (garden store) or maybe even Wal-Mart. I'm in Madison, and they did OK. I think I maybe watered them too much--I got a lot of foliage but not too many pumpkins. The pumpkins I got were very attractive.

Any garden center that sells seeds will more than likely have burpee's lumina and maybe others.

On a side note since wal-mart has been mentioned several times has anyone else found their seeds to worthless. I bought a packet of sweet corn for .97 and of the 30 seeds I planted only 3 ever came up. I looked on the package and it was packed for 2007. The best I can figure they must recycle seeds from previous years since I know corn seeds are viable for 2 years. I planted other varieties of sweet corn not from wal-mart and every single seed sprouted. My advice don't buy seeds from wal-mart.

I also had seeds from Wal-mart not sprout...these were pumpkin seeds though. There were about 10 seeds in the pack and not a single one ever emerged. Lumina, Casper, and Cotton Candy are good jack-o-lantern white pumpkins. Baby Boo are miniature pumpkins, they are the size of Jack-Be-Little's. If you don't want to get seeds from a local store or ebay there are tons of seed company catalogs that carry them. Try Burpee's, Harris Seeds, Twilley, or Gurney's. I believe all of them carry white jack-o-lantern pumpkins.
