Kula Country Farms

Fall is just around the corner, which means it’s a great time to get out to Kula Country Farms in Maui, Hawaii! Kula Country Farms is home to the only pumpkin patch on the island of Maui, and it will be open for visitors on October 1st. As you get ready to head to the pumpkin patch, here are a few things to keep in mind when picking the best pumpkin.

How Will You Use Your Pumpkin?

The best pumpkin for you will depend on how you want to use it. A pumpkin you want sitting on the front porch probably differs from the one you would grab to make a pie.
Kula Country Farms has a wide variety of pumpkin choices, but if your goal is cooking, be sure to grab the right kind.

How Do You Know if a Pumpkin Is Ready to Pick?

A pumpkin is ready to pick when the rind is firm and fully colored. Keep in mind that not all pumpkins are orange. Some are green, yellow, or even pink! A ripe pumpkin should also make a hollow sound when you knock on it.
The team at Kula Country Farms will already have a wide variety of pumpkins picked before you arrive, so you can be sure that the pumpkin you grab will be ready to come home with you.

What Is the Difference Between a Pumpkin and a Gourd?

A pumpkin is a type of squash or gourd, depending on the variety. The term “pumpkin” actually has no botanical meaning. Squash is generally grown to be eaten, while gourds are grown for decoration. That means certain pumpkins (those you can eat) are squash, while others (usually those you carve) are gourds. Pumpkins are also considered fruit!
