My nan said they used to use swedes!

There are two types in our local Tesco, very large at £1.50, and rather too small ones, 80p. Look like deflated footballs.

we used them bout 15 years ago in scotland,only posh people had a pumpkin.:oops:

Those small 75p ones are sweet culinary ones, meant for cooking not carving, hence size. From what I have seen, "selected stores" means ones right close to Asda. Local one still had full price, cause there is no other supermarket here. Another one my mate lives near is literally next door across the road from Asda, and they have the offer on.

pumkins are very easy to carve. the smell makes me boke every time. its one of the most repulsive things to ever pass my nose.. Is it just me? :oops:

I got caught out with Tesco pumkins on Sunday. Huge sign said Large pumpkins £1.00 so I picked one up and it scanned at £1.50. On my way out paasing the display I checked again and above the crates was 2 smaller tickets. Carving pumkins £1.50 and Giant pumpkins £3.50. Figured out the large ones were the smallest ones in the crates. They were all mixed together though so you had to check the individual sticky labels on them. Felt a bit ripped off TBH.
We used to use Turnips too years ago. Pain in the behind to carve tho but they lasted for ages

Carved one on saturday the one from asda made some pumpkin soup aswell was lovely.

This happened to me in Sainsburys today.Big cardbord box thing half full of pumpkins with sign saying 'Managers special £1.50'.so lifted two.One was slightly bigger than the other which scanned through at £3.00.Apparently they do two different sizes.The 'monster' ones are £3.00.Felt cheated cos hardly any difference in size.

Also went to Lidls to get the ones at 75p.There wasn't many left so got the biggest one.Thought the sign said 35p down from 75p,But it scanned at £1.76.Turns out it was 35p/kilo.Got the pumpkins anyway.

Got my 4 from Asda and I'm ready to go!
After having disastrous results cutting all the way through the pumpkin and watching it break or go soggy too quickly I have now learned to hollow it out and then carve just the skin away to make the pattern.
Going to use my dremel this time to get more accurate results.
Take a look at the beauties in the gallery at this site:

Crap just paid £1 for a medium one which my daughter and husband have said is rubbish its too small so have to buy a bigger one.

Yeah we always used snadgees (turnips :-D)

£1 at Asda and £1.50 at Tesco Colchester

Paid £1.50 in Sainsburys and was big enough to to make a good scary face! 80p, £1.50 don't see the point in arguing over saving pence unless u r buying in bulk then guess it adds up!

Good deal, get as big as one you can get it makes the carving easier and you can do better patterns. Here's ours for this year.....

the 'large pumpkins' were 80p in my local tesco (Brixton London) however i would not use the word large for them. They also had 'giant pumpkins' which were much more like the size a pumpkin should be but were £3.50. By the way. anyone know of some good recipes for pumpkin - im sick of throwing all the inside away every year - thought i would try and make use of it.
