Description
 
Casper Pumpkins have a smooth, white rind with a bluish tinge at times, though less so than many other white varieties. They grow to be 18 to 24 inches (45 to 60 cm) wide by 8 to 10 inches (20 to 25 cm) tall, and weigh 10 to 20 pounds (4 ½ kg to 9 kg.)
They have good tasting, dark-orange flesh. When carved this flesh produces a neat contrast with the white skin, and is sure to be a favorite with kids at Halloween. Don't forget to toast those pumpkin seeds with olive oil and salt!
Casper Pumpkins were developed by a Jerry Howell of Fonthill, Ontario (near Niagara Falls, Canada.)
One of the parents was a Shamrock Pumpkin. The pumpkin was released for sale in 1992.
Days to maturity: 100 days from seed.
