Peanut Pumpkin

Another post coming to you from the farmers' market: the peanut pumpkin. They had a huge display of pumpkins and squash out this weekend. As I got closer, I realized it really does look like peanut shells on the pumpkin skin. (eHow says it might be a cross between a squash and pumpkin plant.)
Mr. G isn't a fan of pumpkin, and I don't want to eat 12 pounds of anything by myself so I didn't buy one. But it was too cool not to share :)

  1. I saw some odd pumpkins a couple of weeks ago, too. Where are these coming from?

    Here's mine: Pumpkin Truck!

  2. Looks like warts on normal skin. Are they safe for consumption?
    Happy WW!

  3. I've never seen these before! They look a little...creepy! Definitely unique, though!

    1. Yes, creepy and unique! At first I thought it was mold or something gross, haha.

    4. Oooo. I don't think I could eat them either. Creepy and yucky. Definitely looks like mould in the photo. Give me the nice smooth skin of a Queensland Blue or a Japanese pumpkin.

  5. That's the strangest looking thing I've ever seen! Looks like it has barnacles on it or something!

    BTW - you could always buy a pumpkin and use it to make pumpkin bread or muffins - they freeze wonderfully!

  7. New to me, too. Very appropriate for Hallowe'en: looks like brains!
