This small jack-o'-lantern pumpkin has been the standard pie pumpkin in North America since the 1800's. "Small Sugar" is mainly used for decoration and carving -it's the perfect size for little kids, contrasts with larger pumpkins in your fall displays, and looks so cute when carved!
Culinary: On the plus side, "Small Sugar" is a convenient size to work with in the kitchen, and each pumpkin will yield 2 - 4 cups of flesh, more than enough for a pie. It has the best texture and is the best tasting of the jack-o'-lantern type pumpkins. However, there are much better pumpkins to use in your kitchen such as Winter Luxury Pie or Musquée de Provence.
