Pickin' the perfect pumpkin can be tough, considering the different shapes, sizes, and color. Each pumpkin has different characteristics and, for many people, a personality all it's own.
Here are a few helpful tips for picking the right pumpkin.
Select an unbruised pumpkin about the size and shape of your design.
Choose one that is smooth and evenly colored so your design transfers clearly.
Make sure the pumpkin has a flat bottom so it sits upright.
Watch out for pumpkin that have mold around the stem. This may indicate potential rot.
Do not carry a pumpkin by its stem to prevent it from breaking.
For children, try to select a lighter-colored, softer pumpkin. These don't last as long, but they are easier to carve.Carving
