Baby Boo pumpkins

While the ghost white flesh of these adorable little gourds is certainly edible, Baby Boos are mostly used for decorative and craft purposes.

Be sure to harvest this variety before it reaches full maturity and keep it out of the sun, or else its milky white skin will begin to yellow.
