Excerpt: “According to Sweetbay Supermarket, a Florida-based grocer, it’s the month of October. Just in time for Halloween and October Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Sweetbay is offering pink pumpkins through Oct. 31 at all of its 105 Sweetbay locations in Florida. The pumpkins are $6.99, a dollar less than the typical and larger orange pumpkins.
Jason Hall, store manager at the Sweetbay at 5808 Manatee Ave. W. in Bradenton, said shoppers have been buying the pale, odd-shaped pumpkins.
“They’re intrigued by the color,” he said.
This is the first fall harvest of pink pumpkins, a variety known as Porcelain Doll F1 and created by DP Seeds. The pumpkins feature a pale pink skin with orange flesh.
“We’re constantly looking for new items in our stores,” said Nicole Le Beau, spokesperson for Sweetbay, which is the only grocery store chain selling the brand. “It’s unique, it’s quirky and it’s fun.”
And it’s edible.”
