Halloween Has Gone Pink

Support the fight on breast cancer and add a twist to your Halloween and fall décor.

The Porcelain Doll Pink pumpkin is an eye catching deeply ribbed pink pumpkin. The unique color was part of the inspiration for the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation. Growers, retailers and organizations have teamed up to grow and sell these unique pumpkins in support of breast cancer research. A portion of every pumpkin sold goes to the foundation to support research in the fight against breast cancer.
 
The unique color made it the perfect breast cancer fundraiser and the delicious deeply colored flesh makes it a good purchase for gardeners and cooks.  Use this pumpkin for pies, soups and other dishes.
 
As a gardener you’ll appreciate the plant’s excellent performance.  It showed great powdery and downy mildew tolerance and productivity in trials across the country.
 
Visit the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation website for more details.
 
A bit more information: Want to grow your own Porcelain Doll Pink Pumpkin next year? All you need is a bit of sun, a container or fertile patch of soil and of course the Porcelain Doll Pink Pumpkin seeds. Start seeds outdoors once the soil is warm and you will be harvesting these unique pumpkins in about 100 days.
