Some pumpkin patch tips for getting the best pumpkin in Maryland this year:

If you can, pick yours right off the vine and out of the pumpkin patch. The pumpkin flesh should be free of soft spots which can invite mold and rot. If you're planning to use your pumpkin for carving, choose one that's big enough. Make sure the base is solid and the stem is intact (also, don't carry it by the stem - it might break off). If your pumpkin is destined for a pie, choose a small one grown especially for eating. Once you get your fresh-picked pumpkin home, "cure" it by keeping it undisturbed in a cool, dark place. This toughens up the rind and helps prevent rot.

While you're pumpkin hunting, amaze your friends by sharing these Pumpkin Facts:

  • The Irish brought the tradition of pumpkin carving to America. Originally, they carved turnips to celebrate All Hallows Eve - but pumpkins were plentiful in the states, and easier to handle.
  • The largest pumpkin ever grown weighed 1,140 pounds.
  • Pumpkins were once used to cure freckles and snake bites.
