A pumpkin patch in Shelton is sporting pink pumpkins as a statement. Jamie Jones of the Jones Family Farm likes to talk about pumpkins: “The different shapes, sizes, colors, they’re really just a very exciting crop as a farmer.”
But one gourd’s color is downright gorgeous. This pink-hued pumpkin turns heads at Jones Family Farm, a special variety called Porcelain Doll. These pink pumpkins are so much more than they’re pretty color. There’s a special meaning behind them. It’s all for a good cause, a piece of every pumpkin sold goes right to breast cancer research.
It’s not new to the pumpkin scene but Jamie says they’ve gone under the radar: “I believe it was in 2012 that we originally planted those, the first pink pumpkins call Porcelain Doll, and we’ve been really pleased with it, like I said we don’t grow a lot of them. We’ve always had interest in them.”
