Offbeat pumpkins are stealing the spotlight from ordinary varieties
Thomas J. Story
Origin: A miniature version of an heirloom from France.
Design cred: It’s small (less than 3 pounds) and smooth, and its green skin ripens to orange-tan.
Can you eat it? Sure, in pies. You can also make soup; reserve the top and the hollowed-out shell to use as a pretty serving bowl.
