Pumpkin Facts 🎃
Pumpkins are a member of the gourd family, which includes cucumbers, honeydew melons, cantaloupe, watermelons and zucchini. These plants are native to Central America and Mexico, but now grow on six continents.
The largest pumpkin pie ever baked was in 2005 and weighed 2,020 pounds.
Pumpkins have been grown in North America for five thousand years. They are indigenous to the western hemisphere.
In 1584, after French explorer Jacques Cartier explored the St. Lawrence region of North America, he reported finding “gros melons.” The name was translated into English as “pompions,” which has since evolved into the modern “pumpkin.”
Pumpkins are low in calories, fat, and sodium and high in fiber. They are good sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, potassium, protein, and iron.
The heaviest pumpkin weighed 1,810 lb 8 oz and was presented by Chris Stevens at the Stillwater Harvest Fest in Stillwater, Minnesota, in October 2010.
Pumpkin seeds should be planted between the last week of May and the middle of June. They take between 90 and 120 days to grow and are picked in October when they are bright orange in color. Their seeds can be saved to grow new pumpkins the next year.
Moore Farms is proud to be a fifth generation farm family in Smith County. Their current farm has been in the Newburn family for over 100 years. In 1997, Cleve and Lesley Moore stumbled across an idea to "Entertain" with Agriculture. After a few years of thinking and working with other farms, they decided it was time to put their idea in motion. 2001 was their inaugural year opening the family's farm up to the public.
I really love this farm. This farm is not very far from me and I took my grandkids there for the first time in 2019. It was so much fun and they loved it.
