Eerie-looking white pumpkins — naturally white, not painted are finding their way into more and more homes for Halloween season. The albinos are called Ghost pumpkins, Snowballs, Luminas or Caspers — presumably a reference to the friendly ghost.
Just some of the many varieties of squash available from the markets. Good for a warming soup with paprika. Small versions of the squash are sold as table decorations - they look great in a fruit bowl but definitely not for eating!
