Found 19th Oct 2013
Offer starts from Thursday 24th October and will be nationwide.

Asked a member of staff and they informed me sizes will be medium to large. I realise this is quite subjective; my idea of 'large' is extra large.

What happened to Turnips?

Americans..pah

nice find

Pumpkins are mega cheap this year... guessing the farmers are getting a bad deal.

Bought them last year at asda buy one get one free and found them really dear this year.. Will be buying these.. Thanks

Thanks I need 3

I'll be waiting until 1st November to buy the leftovers cheaper to eat, rather than use as lanterns.

The question is....will Saxo be doing a HUKD pumpkin carving comp this year ? !

Good price thx op.

hmm curry with pumpkins or pie

Pumpkins are cheaper this year because more farmers grew them and there's a glut of them. I grew 3 plants this year and they've produced 8 beauty's whereas I normally just get 1 good one from each plant.
This is a great price for something 99% of people will just carve and throw away.

Forget Halloween.

Anyone know any good recipes? I'd like to try pumpkin pie or soup? Will these be suitable?

Heat just for the awesome pumpkin picture!!

Also... Better ask a female member of staff re sizes. You will probably get a more realistic answer

Actually, I wouldn't say theres a glut this year.

At my local pumpkin farm the size is smaller, as is the harvest overall, I go into the fields prior to harvest to reserve mine for carving, ..a full car load. the difference was there to be seen, however ulike last year they ripened (from green to orange) more successfully.

Any you get sterilise now in milton fluid (dunk & dry) will get rid of nasties & really lengthen the lifespan of your kins.

Find a proper pumpkin farm & get some decent sized kins to have fun with, mine are typically 26- 36 lb in weight, with a few around the 125 mark.

All this rubbish talk about pumpkins really does my swede in!

Hey! A pumpkin officionado is always welcome on a thread like this!

Besides, he's already 'got out' when he went down to the Pumpkin farm

When was the last time you got out and supported your local farmers? Good job Mr Gus

He is getting out - he just said he went down to his local farm. He probably socialises while down there and is doing something he enjoys naturally even if it goes against the grain of your cool image agenda. Besides I would far sooner here Mr Gus' opinion on how to judge a quality pumpkin at this time of year than hear all the drivel about xbox and playstations or some economy curry sauce somebody found in asda for 9p.

I bought a pumpkin from tescos, carved it with the kids to get them in the Halloween spirit for it to mould with in 3 days! not happy and I paid £3 !

Why does i not automatically type in a capital when not joined to a word? Microsoft you sometimes confuse me!


there is no such thing as 'British Haloween'

lmao thats a turnip doh!

The big carving pumpkins aren't fit for eating in my experience. No flesh to speak of & no flavour at all. Wish we could buy slices of pumpkin like they have in other countries.

This will sort your moulding kins out.

fact is most kins are only rinsed from the field (all those micro organisms still present) bleach or milton tablets in water! ..however I recommend you read the pumpkin care page above, it'll keep the nippers happier too.

It's what I do seasonally,(when not preparing for expeditions in arctic back country for instance), I get out plenty, Halloween is fun, pure & simple, & the kins only keep till march, so making hay whilst the sun shines!

Always enjoyed Halloween as a kid, ..no reason to stop!
