Are pumpkins a common sight in Australia and South America?
I know a few Australians grow giant pumpkins to try to break world records, but are the normal-sized variety common?
I ask because our (New York-based) magazine will be shooting a story for our October issue in the beginning of April, and we need pumpkins. Few growers still have any in the USA (we’ve called to Florida and elsewhere), and those that are still around aren’t in very good condition.
We might be willing to ship some in from another country… anyone in the Southern Hemisphere think this would be feasible?
