The Benefits of a Bigger Pumpkin
Pumpkins are one of my favorite things to decorate in the fall. Whether you’re carving them or just displaying them, they make a great addition to any home and can be used year-round if you keep the seeds. I’ve learned over the years that bigger pumpkins have many more benefits than smaller ones and here’s why:
Bigger Is Better
Bigger pumpkins are better. When it comes to pumpkins, bigger is better. They make a better decoration than smaller pumpkins and they can last a long time.
They look great in the fall, winter and spring months because they have more colors than small ones do. The colors will draw attention to your home or yard (especially if you have a lot of trees around). The orange color looks like fire at night which will provide safety for everyone around your house because it will keep people away from danger zones such as power lines or even big animals like bears that may want to come into town during hunting season.”
Bigger Pumpkins Make for A Better Decoration than Smaller Ones.
It’s not just about the size, though. Pumpkins can grow to be quite large—they are a squash, after all. The larger pumpkins are easier to carve, too! A smaller pumpkin might be difficult for children or elderly people on account of its weight and difficulty in handling.
A bigger pumpkin also lasts longer than a smaller one when it comes time for your jack-o-lantern! When you’re done carving your pumpkin, you can use this big guy as decoration in your home or on Halloween night itself!
It’s the Perfect Size to Carve
It’s the perfect size for you to carve into a Jack-o-lantern without worrying about cutting yourself or getting burnt by the candle.
If you’re going to carve your pumpkin, why not make it as easy on yourself as possible? A larger pumpkin will allow you to carve more intricate designs and have more room for detail.
There’s also less chance of hurting yourself when working with a bigger pumpkin. Smaller pumpkins can be more difficult for beginners to cut with precision, which means that it’s easier to accidentally cut into your hand or get burnt from the candle flame while carving.
Bigger Pumpkins Have Longer-Lasting Flesh
The flesh of a bigger pumpkin is sturdier and lasts longer than that of smaller varieties. This makes it ideal for cooking and crafting, as well as other purposes. You can use the flesh to make pumpkin pie or donuts, or you can even use the seeds inside the pumpkin shell as decorations in your home or garden.
It’s important to note that no matter what type of pumpkin you’re planting, it’s still important to take care of your plant throughout its growing season by providing adequate water and fertilizer (if needed).
A Larger Pumpkin Tends to Be Thicker
The skin of a larger pumpkin also tends to be thicker, meaning if you carve it, it will not rot as fast as a smaller pumpkin would if you didn’t do anything with it other than display it on your doorstep.
Additionally, because the skin is so thick and strong, you can use the inside pulp for cooking. The pumpkin’s flesh is dense and almost meat-like in texture so when cooked properly (think: roasted or steamed), this squash can make an excellent side dish or main course during autumn months.
They Are Easier to Decorate than Smaller Pumpkins
A bigger pumpkin is easier to decorate than a smaller one, especially if you’re carving it. With less surface area, it’s harder to get the details of your design across. You’ll also have an easier time making a jack-o-lantern out of a larger pumpkin because there’s more room inside for light bulbs and candles!
You Can Use Them in More Ways than Smaller Ones Are Able Too
Bigger pumpkins are great because they offer a wide range of uses. You can use them to make pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins and pumpkin bread. You can also use them to make pumpkin soup, pumpkin butter, or soup and pie! If you have extra large pumpkins lying around, why not try making some ice cream out of it? Pretty soon you’ll be able to cook almost anything with the help of your massive orange friend.
When It Comes to Pumpkins, Bigger Is Better
We are all familiar with the phrase “bigger is better.” And when it comes to pumpkins, this couldn’t be truer!
Bigger pumpkins can be used for a variety of purposes: they make excellent decorations, they’re great for carving and there’s nothing like eating a nice big slice of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. In addition, larger pumpkins have more flesh than their smaller counterparts, so if you want to use your pumpkin as something other than a decoration or food ingredient then having one that’s bigger will yield more results.
More Flesh to Carve
When it comes to carving the perfect pumpkin, size does matter. A bigger pumpkin means more flesh to carve, which in turn means more room for creativity. You can go wild with your design, or even carve multiple smaller pumpkins into one big one.
More Seeds to Roast
A bigger pumpkin means more seeds to roast! Roasted pumpkin seeds are a healthy and delicious snack, full of nutrients like magnesium, zinc, and healthy fats. They’re also a great source of plant-based protein. So if you’re looking for an excuse to buy a large pumpkin, roasting the seeds is a great way to use them.
More Room for A Candle
One popular reason people like to have a more enormous pumpkin is so that they can put a candle inside it. This is because the pumpkin will have more room and be sturdier so that the candle doesn’t fall over. Also, if you have a big enough pumpkin, you can put multiple candles inside it, which looks cool.
And that’s why Bigger pumpkins are better than smaller pumpkins.
