How to Pick a Pumpkin: 5 Tips for Picking the Perfect Pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch!

It's pumpkin picking time! There may be nothing more fun to do with kids this time of year. How to make sure you get a good one? Here are tips to do it right: 

  • Look for pumpkins without mush. Feel your pumpkins before buying them. A pumpkin can look great on the outside, but mush will cause a pumpkin to rot faster.
  • Make sure your pumpkin is orange. Traditional and healthy pumpkins should be orange all over. Green on your pumpkin can mean that something is wrong with it, and it may be difficult to carve.
  • Get a good handle. A pumpkin needs to have a hard stem, and it should have a strong handle for carrying.
  • Let kids help choose their pumpkin.
  • Have fun and take lots of pictures!
