"Vibrant yellow jack o’lantern puts a colorful twist on the standard Halloween pumpkin. Very attractive, ribbed fruit ranges from 10-16” in diameter and weighs 10 -15 lbs. Slightly flattened bottom helps fruit sit evenly on your porch or table. Strong handles stay attached to the fruit and dark green handle color contrasts nicely with vivid yellow skin. Yellow color starts out pale and brightens with maturity. Plants are semi-bush in habit and show tolerance to powdery mildew in the field. This variety is another original release from the High Mowing breeding program in collaboration with the University of New Hampshire. "
