Halloween and pumpkins

Halloween means high demand to buy pumpkins. One of the largest growers in the UK is David Bowman, with a 200ha farm growing three million pumpkins especially for this time of the year. Over 100 staff lift the massive crop into the warehouse to ripen then they are shipped out to the major supermarkets for customers to enjoy cutting out the surface to make a face and a lantern. Pumpkins are also becoming increasingly enjoyed for their taste and a number of varieties are available to eat with more on the horizon.
