The Seminole pumpkin is a rich, sweet heirloom pumpkin cultivar native to the Everglades in Florida with excellent disease resistance. The pumpkin can endure hot, humid conditions and allows the gourd to be stored for extended periods of time (up to a year at room temperature). Performs great in hot and humid climates throughout almost the entire year. Seminole pumpkins tend to vary in shape quite a bit due to the growing conditions they experience. Some Seminole pumpkins are round, while others are pear-shaped. Some can be as small as 3 pounds, while other individual fruits can weigh up to 12 pounds. The rind is a pale tan color, and the interior flesh is a deep orange. Delicious and sweeter than most pumpkins. The hollowed-out rind can be dried and used for crafting. Its ties to the indigenous peoples of Florida add to the interest and distinctiveness of the Seminole Pumpkin.
