Developed by John Howden of Massachusetts in the early 1970's. Howden has become the model jack-o'-lantern pumpkin by which others are compared. Fruits average 15 to 25 lbs. and are deeply rounded in shape with classic ribbing, dark orange color and extra-thick flesh that holds in prime condition for a long time. Sturdy handles are strongly attached. Produces excellent yields.
