    Hi Carol,

    I haven't grown pumpkins for several years now, but a variety that I liked which grew good here in Northern Ontario is call Spirit. It's a good sized average pumpkin about 5 kg and the skin is orange throughout it's growing, so you don't get green pumpkins if the season closes in. The flesh is ideal for baking and nice seeds.

    No, the seeds are not hullless.
