From your friends at Botanical Interests: This perfeclt little round, smooth-skinned pumpkin is 3-4" in diameter and weighs jst 8-12 ounces. It is a great choice for your 'mini gardeners' to grow from seed to harvest, then decorate with acrylic paints, permanent markers, or glitter. Mature pumpkins may keep for several months, and decorated pumpkins can be well-preserved with a spray of polyurethane glaze. If you'd rather serve your pumpkins at the dinner table, the undecorated fruits can be scooped out and baked for mini-desserts, soups, or casseroles.
