White pumpkins are available in the fall.
A member of the squash cultivator Cucurbita maxima, the Lumina pumpkin is one of the more popular white variety pumpkins. There are many varieties of white pumpkins on the market today such as Albino, Cotton Candy and Full Moon.
Lumina pumpkins are mid-sized, with white to cream colored skin and broad ribbing. They have a classic round and slightly squat pumpkin shape and their flesh is bright orange with a sweet pumpkin flavor.
The flesh of the Lumina pumpkin can be cooked and used in any traditional pumpkin recipe. Use to make pies, waffles, tarts and flan. Roast cubed Lumina pumpkin and add to Thai curries, pasta preparations and salads. Use cooked pureed Lumina pumpkin to enhance soups, sauces and oatmeal. Lumina pumpkins are also a popular decorative pumpkin as their smooth white skin provides a perfect canvas for painting.
Lumina pumpkins are specially bred for their white color. As with many varieties of white pumpkins once mature Lumina pumpkins should be harvested promptly as their white skin tends to develop blue to gray spotting if left on the vine too long.
