I have this pumpkin that I need an ID For

There was a very large bin of pumpkins of all shapes and sizes at our local super walmart. On sale...so I decided to nab one of these up for the seeds as it was so unusual. It weighs around 10 lbs. The flesh is almost white with a tinge of green. The seeds are large and white. Any ideas ?

Thanks !

It looks like "One Too Many".

Agree with mainegardener, It 's One Too Many. It was developed as an ornamental, not much for eating.

Wow , that is absolutely amazing how fast you all identified this for me, thank you !
Ok can I ask one more....I also bought these two, weighed in at 22-25 lbs each. I havn't cut them open yet so I don't know what color the 'flesh' is. Any ideas ? Thanks again !

Those look like "Muscat de Provence", which has orangish flesh similar to butternut.

While they have not colored up yet, I would again agree with mainegardener that Musque de Province is a good probability. It is a cheese pumpkin (C. moshata) and Musque de Provence is one of the few in that size. http://www.johnnyseeds.com/catalog/product.aspx?item=2621&source=DG Rumbo is also a possility
