Pumpkin, Howden #3323 CO2
(115 days) Cucurbita pepo Open-pollinated. For 40 years Howden’s symmetrical fruits with hard ridged skin and thick flesh have so much set the standard for large round jack-o’-lanterns both for fresh market and shipping that they are now a New England tradition. Large spreading vines produce 4–6 deep orange fruits per plant, typically much more uniform than Connecticut Field while weighing 20–35 lb, often able to ripen fully in our climate. Developed by John Howden in Massachusetts and introduced by Harris Moran in 1973.
