Warty White Pumpkin

Such an odd pumpkin! This one, larger than a basketball, was grown by a dear friend from a package of mixed seeds. The variety wasn’t marked so she has no idea of its name. So far all I can find it referred to as is a warty white pumpkin. But what a great Halloween pumpkin it makes. Just look at that surface. It reminds me of my chenille crocheted wash cloth. Now that I think about it, in colour and texture, the rind actually looks more like peanut shells. I wonder how long it will be before this type of pumpkin is for sale at the local grocery store?
