Product Description
If you grow one pumpkin in your home garden, let it be this one! Early Prince Hybrid Pumpkin is a true all-around pumpkin. Not only is it an excellent choice for baking into spicy pies, cookies or breads, it's also a great carving pumpkin for your Halloween celebrations, and makes fine seasonal fall décor, too. The 13-15 lb. fruits feature well-attached handles that make toting them from garden to kitchen a breeze. And, as its name implies, it is an early-maturing variety that is ready for harvest much sooner than other pumpkins. Early Prince is a versatile choice for many areas of the country, including North, West and Mid-Atlantic regions. 90 days to maturity.
