Mammoth King Pumpkins



Mammoth King Pumpkins are slightly flattened. The rind is a mottled yellow and orange, with faint ribs.

Inside, they have coarse, thick yellow to bright-orange flesh.

They grow to be 18 to 24 inches (45 to 60 cm) wide and weigh 50 to 100 pounds (22 to 45 kg.)

Despite their size, they have good flavour for serving as a squash, or in pies.
