This is a summary of the best current deals for Pumpkins (inc Orange & Orangey Green) Note that some of the deals are so cheap that they'd also be great for pies too (i.e. you don't have to use the pumpkin just for Halloween).
The best deals are shown for each of the main supermarkets. IT IS VITAL TO ONLY PICK PUMPKINS WHICH YOU ARE ABLE TO GET HOME IN ONE PIECE. If you are unsure ask someone who HAS A CRANE!
Every deal is shown in the same format. First is the name of the supermarket; next is the current cost and approximate size.
I hope this helps people. Please feel free to contribute to the discussions for the continued benefit of all. Let me know if there are any good local deals near you ie farmers markets, farm shops, fields with easy access etc.

Biggish pumpkins - some are football size and some a little bit bigger. Nice orange colour - some have a little bit of green on too.
£1 for a tiddler.
£2 or 2 for £3 - no bigger than a football.
£3 for a "Giant" Pumpkin - bigger than Asdas but if I was Cinderella, I'd be anxious at the ball about getting home.
