Lil’ Ironsides are small pumpkins, with very smooth, bright-orange skin, and only faint ribs.
They are used as an ornamental pumpkin.
They grow to be 6 inches (15 cm) wide by 4 inches (10 cm) tall, and weigh 1 1/2 to 2 pounds (700 to 900g.)
They have a very thin but hard rind. The hard rind means that they will store well, but it also makes them hard to carve. Paint them instead.
The pumpkins grow on an F1 hybrid, semi-bush plant.
105 days from seed.
Lil’ Ironsides Pumpkins were developed by the Harris Moran Seed Company.
