About the Pumpkins:
They are native pumpkins, grown by SIW Vegetables, a historical farm located right here in Chadds Ford. They weigh between 150 and 400 pounds. Most of them are of the variety “Prize-Winner,” a drought resistant pumpkin that tends to be bright orange. There are also a few “Atlantic Giants” which tend to be paler and sometimes a less regular shape.
