Half-Moon Pumpkins have smooth, rich orange rind with ribs close together, and firmly-attached handles.
The flesh walls are thick.
They grow to be about 12 inches (30 cm) wide by 14 inches (36 cm) tall, and weigh 15 to 20 pounds (6 ¾ to 9 kg.)
Half-Moon Pumpkins were developed by the Twilley Seed Company.
Half-Moon Pumpkins are perhaps named after Half Moon Bay, California, USA, where an annual pumpkin festival is held.
