Tiger Pumpkins

I don't know, perhaps I am not mainstream pumpkin enough.

I mean, shame on me for thinking most pumpkins were naturally either solid orange or solid white.
But who would have thought you could have the best of both colors in one pumpkin.
and that they would call it a Tiger Pumpkin
 and that I would place them on my kitchen mantel so I can constantly look at them and wonder what the Pumpkin Masters will come up with next.

PS- As I researched these little guys that I had never seen before this weekend, I found a great tutorial on how to grow your own Tiger Pumpkins for next season here

Those sure are cute. I didn't know they had their very own name like that. I probably would've thought they were a gourd or something.

I have seen these but I didn't know they have a name. Nothing grew in the garden so next year I'll plant all gourds and pumpkins.
