"This beautiful, little pie pumpkin weighs in at 2-4 lbs and has a rich, dark-orange color. Little Giant Pumpkins' small fruit have firmly attached dark green handles and are smooth enough for painting but they still have light ribbing that gives them the look of a real miniature jack-o- lantern. "
