Sexy pumpkin!

 I got given this pumpkin, it is quite big and really beautiful, I am not quite sure about the variety, a long neck? I don't want to cut it yet (too pretty) so it has been posing in my living room like a big bottomed model in an art studio.
Does anyone know this variety, and what it is best used for? I expect that I can get quite a bit of flesh from the 'neck' while all the seeds are in the round bottom part… and if this is the case I may just keep some seeds for next year, so I can too have some fancy long neck beauties like this one!

Well, if you have a name, and some recipes, for my model I look forward to hearing from you! :-)

  1. I cut the pumpkin and it was different than I expected: non flesh in the neck, but plenty in the 'bottom'. I cooked half in a soup, needed other veggie for a bust but on the bright side it is much easier to cut that a crown pumpkin! I saved the seed, let's hope they don't get moldy, it is so wet and humid here now!
