Looking for the perfect pumpkin for Halloween can be tricky. Here are some tips to pick up the perfect one!
1.Think about your design
Sometimes it helps to think of your design before you go so that you know what size and stem you’re looking for. It’s also important to pick a healthy pumpkin that can last through all the trick or treaters and still be fresh to make pumpkin pie with!
2. Check the pumpkin carefully
Give your pumpkin of choice a good once over to make sure it doesn’t have any soft spots or mold you may not have noticed at first. Look for wrinkles or open cuts that indicate damage or early spoilage. Make sure your pumpkin’s stem is solidly attached – a green stem indicates a freshly harvested pumpkin. And before you go, don’t forget to place your pumpkin on a flat surface to make sure it will still sit flat after you carve it.
