Blue Pumpkins: Wordless/Wordful Wednesday

Last week I showed pictures of the Halloween fun we had, and mentioned the pumpkin patch we went to had blue pumpkins.  Only I neglected to actually show pictures of the blue pumpkins.  So this week I thought I’d rectify that.

If you squint, you can sort of see the blue pumpkins interspersed amongst the orange ones:

But here’s a better picture of a blue one:

And here are the three we picked up:

The hubby accidentally broke the stems on two of the pumpkins as we snagged them from the pumpkin patch.  But that was OK, since I never did get my fall decorations put up, so these will be made into pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread.  Don’t need the stems for that!  I think the all blue is really cool:

Though the other two are cool, too, with the blue contrasting the orange.  I didn’t know that pumpkins came in any other color except orange (which is what the color ‘pumpkin’ is) and white, but after seeing them with our own eyes at the pumpkin patch, I did a little research and found that pumpkins also come in red, too!  I’ll definitely be saving seeds from these pumpkins and see if I can grow some next year.  I’ll have to see if I can get some seeds for the other colors – just to grow my own different and unique pumpkin patch next year.  After all, I’m different and unique, so why not?

What’s your favorite color of pumpkin?  And what’s your favorite pumpkin food?

I love the way my mom prepares a pumpkin dish. She uses dried prawns but the dish never goes down well with my caucasian friends!!!
Love the blue pumpkins!

Stacy I’m a huge pumpkin fan! So far I’ve made 3 sets of pumpkin pancakes, 2 sets of muffins and 2 pies all from one pumpkin!

Blue pumkins,eh? Who would have thought? Very fun.

Love pumpkin pie, but never make it…. I did finally roast some pumpkin seeds this year…. I liked them. My kids? Not so much. :)

The idea of different color pumpkins is interesting. I didn’t know there was such a think. I love everything pumpkin. This weekend I plan to make pumpkin curry soup. :D Yum.

5 Felicia November 10, 2010 at 8:39 am

Those are gorgeous! I think my favorite are just the plain ole orange ones!

6 Casey November 10, 2010 at 9:34 am

I’ve never had anything other than an orange pumpkin but I think that green one you guys have is awesome. I’ll look for something different next year…

7 Jennifer-Eighty MPH Mom November 10, 2010 at 9:40 am

How neat are those? I didn’t know they were any color other than orange either! You sure picked some unique ones – fun!

8 Alison November 10, 2010 at 10:07 am

Cool pumpkins! I’ve only ever bought orange pumpkins…wanted to get a white one this year, but couldn’t find one..never saw blue before!

9 brian November 10, 2010 at 10:15 am

i like the white green and yellow ones…

10 Teri November 10, 2010 at 10:32 am

Those are amazing pumpkins! I have never seen a blue one before.

I was expecting to see Blue Hubbard Squashes when I scrolled down, but those are definitely pumpkins – Hubbard squashes are more oblong than round (but darn delicious). I like the color variations in the two on the right.

12 feefifoto November 10, 2010 at 11:29 am

Very pretty. Are they edible, or merely picturesque?

13 Kelly, The Glass Dragonfly November 10, 2010 at 11:43 am

They are very pretty!

14 XmasDolly November 10, 2010 at 11:48 am

PUMPKIN PIE & WHIP CREAM Nummers!!!!!!!! Okay, never knew there were different colored pumpkins actually I’ve seen t hem, but I thought they were called something else cuz they weren’t orange! Okay, slap my back and call me stupid!

15 Run DMT November 10, 2010 at 12:21 pm

That has got to be the coolest pumpkin EVER. I never saw a blue one before. Very cool! And I am so jealous of your real pumpkin patch. Our pumpkin patches are just pumpkins laying in a field.

I love everything pumpkin: bread, lattes, ice cream and of course, pie. YUM! :-)

16 Danielle November 10, 2010 at 12:55 pm

I don’t think I have ever seen a blue pumpkin…maybe I’ll look for one next year. My son would absolutely love a blue pumpkin!

17 Pooba November 10, 2010 at 1:11 pm

Wait, you make pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread using a real pumpkin?
How the heck do you do that? I’m a canned pumpkin kinda girl!

But I love love pumpkin! I’d have to say the pie is my fav!

18 Harriet November 10, 2010 at 10:13 am

We got some odd looking ones too this year. They’re just as fun.

Have a great day!

When I had a restaurant with my then-husband, we had a chef who made a pumpkin soup that was so good!!! It was like having hot liquid pumpkin pie. We put a dollop of whipped cream on top to garnish. Unfortunately, the recipe has been lost.

20 Boobies November 10, 2010 at 1:43 pm

I’ve never seen a blue pumpkin! VERY cool!

21 VandyJ November 10, 2010 at 2:07 pm

Blue pumpkins–awesome! I love pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread. And we love to watch the Pumpkin Chunkin’ on the Discovery Channel. That’s where I first saw white pumpkins.

22 JDaniel4's Mom November 10, 2010 at 2:20 pm

I love the pumpkins with the marbleized effect. Didn’t realize pumpkins came in all these colors.

23 Kristina P. November 10, 2010 at 11:43 am

Those are cool! I don’t think I’ve ever seen blue pumpkins before.

24 Kyooty November 10, 2010 at 2:57 pm

Those look so pretty, blue is my favorite colour :)

25 Julie From Momspective November 10, 2010 at 3:40 pm

I just realized you have a commenter named “Boobies”. I must friend her. I also wish we had pumpkins. The leaves here are beautiful but we don’t have any pumpkins close by.

26 Laura November 10, 2010 at 6:33 pm

Very cool. I never knew pumpkins were in other colors either..good luck growing them next year.

27 Jason November 10, 2010 at 7:50 pm

Those are so very cool!

The other day I had a pumpkin/cream cheese muffin that was to die for.

28 Danielle November 10, 2010 at 8:17 pm

Blue? I had no idea they came in any other color than orange. I would love to see a red one!

29 Sprite's Keeper November 10, 2010 at 8:33 pm

Pumpkin ginger cupcakes, yum!

30 lisleman November 10, 2010 at 8:34 pm

I’ve seen greenish ones but not blue.
What color was the insides?

31 Jill November 10, 2010 at 9:14 pm

I have never seen a blue one. Thanks for sharing and for visiting my site. I hope the recipes turn out awesome.

32 Serendipity is Sweet November 10, 2010 at 9:24 pm

I love they blue ones. They are so cool. I love any of the warty looking ones too.

33 Kate November 10, 2010 at 10:25 pm

I’ve never seen anything like that. I like them though!

34 debbie November 10, 2010 at 7:44 pm

Oooh…I love them! Very cool.

37 Ginny Marie November 11, 2010 at 8:08 am

Those are so neat! Is the flesh of that blue pumpkin blue, too? Will your pumpkin pie be blue? I’m very curious!

38 Debby November 11, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Love them, they are so pretty. I actually haven’t seen any other color in person except for orange!
