    Default Can I eat green (unripe) pumpkins?

    So the frost killed off my pumpkin plant which I planted out too late and have only got 2 green pumpkins that obviously haven't ripened. Are they suitable for eating? I have a curry meal planned for them.

    Yes you can

    I harvested two Baby Bear pumkins while they were still green (by accident). i put them in my shed by the window and they are now a bright orange. Worth a try ?

    They might taste a bit bland though...
