Young’s Beauty Pumpkins were developed by Arthur and John Youngs of Glen Head, Long Island, New York from a selection of chance sugar pumpkin offsprings. They worked with the plant for 8 years to make sure that, that the selection they had made would remain true to type, even though its heritage was owing to change mutations. They sold rights to the pumpkin to the Joseph Harris Company of Rochester, New York.
