Pumpkins that Pale to Those Past

Now this is a surprising box of pumpkins. I don’t believe I’ve seen many this shade. I’ve seen different textures before; a few are positively warty! Those make great jack-o-lanterns. On a quick search, I’ve found that the nickname of the white-colored gourds in the photo is “ghost” pumpkins and they can be used just like orange ones in pies and soups.

Do you see varieties in colors, shapes and sizes of pumpkins in stores near you?

  1. I don‘t think I‘ve ever seen a „ghost pumpkin“ „in the flesh“, as it were, but I remember a TV quiz show question where contestants were asked to check off all the colors they thought pumpkins could be. They thought white pumpkins didn‘t exist and were shown a photo as proof they were wrong! 😀 So, ever since I‘ve known about their existence … at least in theory! 🙂

      1. Thank you very much for liking my sky capture. The news about cyclone kept on reaching as it gained strength further in its path. Today, it made a landfall on the coast of Oman, with winds up 116 kmph.
