Pumpkins We Grow

We have grown 10 species of pumpkins on over 3 acres of beautiful Saskatchewan farmland.  Any pumpkin sold at Cross Iron Acres was grown right in the patch you pick it from!  We do not import any pumpkins to resell, making the pumpkins you pick, locally grown with pride!

Polar Bear retains its color after maturity in the field, at market, and in decorative displays. Long, vigorous vines produce fruit typically weighing 30–65 lb, but may exceed 100 lb.



Drum-shaped fruit with heavy, rounded ribs and slate-gray skin. Sweet, thick, orange flesh. Long storage. An attractive squash for fall displays and great eating, too.



Unique for doorstep decorations and painting. Medium-size, flattened, avg. 11–5" diam. x 6–8" tall, slightly ribbed, with smooth white skin. Thick orange flesh suitable for pies. Avg. 10–15 lb

The sweet flesh can be used for pies, soups, and other gourmet delights. Full vines bear blocky, deeply ribbed fruit averaging 16–24 lb.



Striking, rich orange, avg. 14–18 lb. fruits are thick-walled and blocky round. Robust handle, strong PMR, and a medium vine.  Great for Carving!



Early maturing, lightly warted, medium round 9-12 in white pumpkin with large, firmly attached handles. Uniform shape and size and semi-hard shell that keeps color longer.

Pumpkin Care Tips

 - Store your pumpkin in a cool dry place (10 - 16 degrees C)

 - Do not place them directly on a concrete floor - put them on a piece of cardboard or wood

 - Wash and thoroughly dry the pumpkins, and then wipe them down with a weak bleach solution to discourage rot. Make the bleach solution by adding 2 tablespoons (20 ml.) of bleach to 1 gallon (4 L.) of water.


 - Pumpkins can survive light frosts, but if they freeze they will turn to mush once thawed

 - If your pumpkin has a bit of green on it, face the green section towards the sun during the day.  Pumpkins will continue to ripen off the vine, so don't worry if its not entirely orange!
