Pumpkins in Frankfurt - Kürbishof Müller

   

We checked out Kürbishof Müller today as we were looking for pumpkins and a "pumpkin patch experience", and information on it was written up in the Heute. It was a fun experience and the town it's in (Langgöns) was neat to drive through, although overall it was a bit different than expected. It is not actually a pumpkin patch, but rather a courtyard between two houses where they sell pumpkins/squash. But they had a grand variety of squashes, very attractive carving pumpkins, and tons of interesting gourds, along with some decorative items and pumpkin wine. The proprietor was very nice. The prices are incredible, particularly compared to what we're used to in the States.

So if you're looking to buy a rarer variety of squash while getting your carving pumpkins on the cheap, this is the place for you. For the "fall experience" I think we'll try Goldgrund next time. I'll let you know how it is!

And speaking of squash, I can't wait to whip up this risotto to help usher in fall!
