Munchkin Pumpkins hit for Halloween
Just in time for Halloween, Munchkin Pumpkins, arrive at Borough Market. For only two days, Emily and Guy from Foxes Farm Produce, bring their miniature Munchkin Pumpkins directly from their small Farm in Aldham, Colchester.
Work at Foxes Farm Produce starts at the beginning of May when they plan their pumpkins as seeds, and then they watch them grow! Harvesting then starts at the beginning of September, which takes the whole month and lots of tender loving care.
This year over 9,000 pumpkins have been harvested from small pie star variety to large Howden; as well as 10,000 Munchkin pumpkins. Perfect to cook - roasted, baked or even used as a soup bowl they taste delicious. Munchkins are the size of the palm of your hand so are loved by both adults and children alike.
Emily and Guy will be on hand to answer any pumpkin/munchkin related questions on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th October.
