Winter Luxury Pumpkin
Cucurbita pepo
Avg. 5–7 lbs.

Don’t fall into the too-pretty-to-eat trap with Winter Luxury: Branstrator considers it the world’s best pie pumpkin. “It’s a true heirloom variety,” he explains. “The flavor and custardy texture is superior for pie.” To judge for yourself, cut one in half, scoop out (and roast!) the seeds, and bake it upside down until rusty brown and fork tender.
