Wrinkled Pumpkin

The first reaction when my daughter saw this pumpkin was "Mama..Papa...look at that pumpkin.. there's a lot of boo boo! (Boo-Boo-a child's reference, or a reference to a childs, cut, scrape, or other superficial injury)"...lol! My husband and I were laughing out loud when she said it. We told her that it was not a bobo...lol!
You will most likely be tempted to select a pumpkin with a nice smooth skin, but beware. Smooth pumpkins are like that because they contain more water than the wrinkled, 'ugly' ones. The more water that a pumpkin starts out with before it is carved, the more water it will loose through evaporation after it is carved, and will shrivel. A wrinkled pumpkin starts out much dryer, so there is less moisture to loose after it is carved, and will naturally shrivel less.
