By / Spotlight On Business / Wednesday, 21 October 2015 04:00

CAROLINA BEACH, NC - The Veggie Wagon has stocked up on a variety of North Carolina, locally grown pumpkins. They have loads of pumpkin pie pumpkins, which are fantastic for cooking and work well for the smaller members of your family.
They have traditional pumpkins ranging in sizes from small all the way up to large and an extra large pumpkin, called a Cronus Pumpkin. Cronus pumpkins usually weigh anywhere between 25 to 60lbs. They are beautifully round and perfect for carving!
In addition to traditional pumpkin selection the Veggie Wagon also has tons of heirloom pumpkins! They come in all sizes, colors and shapes. Some are flatter, while others are round and plump. The many shades of heirloom pumpkins are what set them apart from all other pumpkins. In addition to outward appearance- they make the best cooking pumpkins! The types of heirloom pumpkins the Veggie Wagon is offering this year are the Blue Jarrahdale, Green Fairy Tale, Red and White One Too Many, Red Cinderella, and the Pink Porcelain Doll.
The Veggie Wagon has a new Fall Latte. Their Honey Hazelnut Organic Latte is a must try! Using local, Wilmington honey, Organic flavoring, Organic milk(non-dairy options also available), and Organic Espresso coffee, roasted by Island Roast Coffee, located right here on Pleasure Island. This will only be offered for a limited time, so be sure to keep warm on the cooler Autumn days.
