Baking Pumpkins - How long do they last?

Mothership | Nov 7, 2010 05:07 AM

I want to make the stuffed pumpkin recipe from Around my French Table by Dorie Greenspan. My daughter just told me that our grocery store in Florida currently has no pumpkins at all and certainly not any small baking pumpkins. Right now I am up in Wappinger Falls, New York and am going over to Adams Fairacre Farms (a fabulous little grocery store - heavy on the fresh, local produce) and am hopeful that they have the pumpkins that I need. My question is - how long will these pumpkins last. I will be driving back to Florida this week and would like to take several home with me. I just don't know how perishable these pumpkins are. Would they last just a few days, will they last a week or so? Pumpkin is not an ingrediant that I work with often so I just have no clue, but this recipe sounds soooo good. Thanks for any info anyone can give me.
