Howden
Howden


The standard large pumpkin. Developed by John Howden of Massachusetts in the early 1970s, it defined "the look" in big Halloween pumpkins—deep orange color, defined ribs, and good handles. Fruits vary in shape and weight, typically averaging 18-26 lb. or larger. Avg. yield: 1-2 fruits/plant. While still nice in a good year, the new hybrids are more dependable in quality and yield. Originator's stock. Organically grown. Avg. 2,900 seeds/lb. OP. 115 Days

Intermediate resistance to black rot, Howden is a beautiful big pumpkin that we highly recommend. It is a Connecticut Field type but is far superior. Its size is more uniform, averaging 20 to 25 lbs., and the deep-round fruit are quite symmetrical. Very solid with extra-thick flesh, it is much less apt to produce lopsided fruit. Its hard, ridged, richly colored skin keeps in prime condition for a remarkably long time. This variety was developed as a private stock by John Howden of Massachusetts and released exclusively to Harris years ago.

Approximately 2,040 seeds per pound
