Short Term Pumpkin Storage

Pumpkin chunks will keep in the refrigerator in a perforated plastic bag for at least a week; left at room temperature, the pumpkin flesh will dehydrate.

Pumpkin Long Term Storage

Fresh whole pumpkin will keep for 2 months in a dry, ventilated room with temperatures in the 50 to 55 degree range and a relative humidity of 60 to 75%..

For longer storage you can freeze cooked pumpkin; cook, puree and package in freezer containers to be used within 6 months.

The quality of dried pumpkin is fair to good; store in a dry and cold location for the longest shelf life.

Pumpkin Side Notes

Smaller sugar (or pie) pumpkins have a thicker shell packed all the way through with pulp; larger Halloween carving pumpkins are grown specifically for their shell (hollow inside).
