Pumpkin Seeds ★ Knucklehead
The knucklehead is not just decorative, it is a 'real' pumpkin and part of the squash family like the other pumpkins; and like any other pumpkin you can grow it in your garden, carve it, bake it and eat the pumpkin seeds.
In size, knuckleheads are smaller- to medium-sized pumpkins, ranging from ten to twenty pounds when ripe.
Twelve to fifteen pounds seems to be the average, and knuckleheads don't seem to reach a large or jumbo size like some other types.
In shape, they have a reliable upright shape, rather than being fat or flat or irregular, like other pumpkins that tend to grow squat and fat and in other unpredictable shapes.
Knuckleheads average a foot in height and a couple inches less than that in diameter, so look slightly elongated vertically.
In taste, I the knucklehead has very sweet and yellow flesh after roasting.
In color, the knucklehead pumpkin is also stable, remaining a deep and vivid orange when ripe, while other pumpkins vary from light yellowish-orange to deep orange.
The knucklehead begins life as an unripe green pumpkin, like any other, and as it ripens it turns a mottled orange-green, then the green is eventually all replaced by orange, though in some the 'warts' retain their deep green color even into ripeness.
