How Long Do Pumpkins Last after You Carve Them?

Ask.com Answer for: how long do pumpkins last after you carve them
Jack-o-Lanterns look best for the first 48 hours after carving, and will then start to dry out, shrivel and get moldy.
To make it last longer, you can put petroleum jelly over the cut edges, and keep in a cool place like the refrigerator when not on display.
