What Are Some Different Types of Pumpkins?

Some different types of pumpkins are the small, edible Jack-be-little and the glowing white Lumina. Other varieties of pumpkins are New England Pie, which is traditionally used in desserts, and the Aladdin, a Jack-o-lantern pumpkin.

The Amish pie pumpkin weighs less than 10 pounds and looks like a creamy orange apple. Baby Bear produces tasty seeds for roasting and makes an excellent "pumpkin bowl." Giant pumpkins include the Big Max, which is bright orange and can grow to over 100 pounds. Use the Cinderella for either decorating or pie making because it looks like a pumpkin in a classic fairy tale. Baby Boo are tiny white pumpkins that often appeal to children.
