Green pumpkin – My Sunday Photo

You may see a strange looking pumpkin. On the other hand, I see the perfect pumpkin to make pie. Sweet pumpkin pie. My favourite.

I like how this pumpkin challenges stereotypes. It’s not orange and it’s not smooth. More gnarly and, well, green, to be perfectly honest. It’s never going to make it into a production of Cinderella, not when there are orange ones to steal the show.

It’s still a pumpkin. Still being made into a pie and will taste far better than the oversized, orange version. Sweeter. It will also have its turn at being carved into a scary face with a candle lighting it up inside. I have the feeling that its shape will make it quite interesting.

Just doing its bit to prove that not all pumpkins are orange.

ps If you don’t like the taste of pumpkin, it may that you haven’t found the right pumpkin yet. You might prefer a green type like this one.
