Amish Pie Heirloom Pumpkin is an excellent variety for making pies, as the name suggests, due to its firm, moist flesh.

They are also great for soups and other baked goods.

This pumpkin variety originated with Amish gardeners in the Maryland Mountains. With pumpkins weighing up to 90 pounds, it has established a proud reputation with home gardeners!
