White pumpkins are the same as the orange, in terms of tasting the same, baking the same, planting the same and growing the same. They also carve the same. Although, the albino version might be a bit easier due to their skin. They are not as thick-skinned as their orange jack-0-lantern cousins!

Baby Boo, another variety of white pumpkins (perfectly named, right?), are perfect inside or out. I have white pumpkins inside throughout my house and I also use them outside. I have a bunch of them in a tin, surrounded by mums and I love the way they look. They also look great with my green and purple sweet potato vines! Contrast!!
