Pumpkins are a symbol of the fall season, and several acres are grown locally. Whether you grow or buy pumpkins, it is important to realize that careful harvesting and handling will help them last.
Pumpkins should be harvested as soon as they are ripe and show a good orange color. Ripe pumpkins can be left in the field for a period of time and can tolerate light frost. Do not try to harvest when the fruit and vines are wet since this can lead to the development of fruit rot.
