Introduced in 2013, the Mrs is a smaller and wrinklier version of Mr. Wrinkles. Instead of the standard smooth pumpkin face with straight even ribs, Mrs. Wrinkles is a pumpkin with character! Her face is a little bumpy, and there are lots of ribs. The shell is slightly harder than most jack-o-'lanterns making her more durable, but still easy to carve. She comes with a good strong stem, and darker complexion than most other pumpkins.
