I have pumpkin vines growing from my compost pile and pumkins are now forming. Last years pumpkins were Howdens and Baby Bears. I harvested some pumkins last year from that planting. I enjoyed the home-grown pumkins on my porch for a while and then l
composted them when winter set in. So this years pumkins are a result of the composted pumkins from last year. The Baby Bears look the same as they did last year. But the Howdens are smaller and a different shape than they were last year. Do you think they could be a Howden-Baby Bear cross? The look in-between the 2 varieties in both shape and size. They are starting to turn orange so I don't expect them to get much bigger or that the shape will change.
