Pumpkins are very popular in the fall season, and especially around Halloween. Uncarved pumpkins will last up to 8 to 12 weeks if the pumpkin was healthy when it was picked, and if there were no diseases in the pumpkin patch. It will not last as long if kept in cold weather, however. The best temperature for a pumpkin is between 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Once a pumpkin is carved, however, it will only last up to 10 days.
Depends on how ripe the pumpkin is when you get it. If the pumpkin is hard to the touch and does not scratch easily then the pumpkin can last a very long time. You have to check for bug holes and mold in cracked areas of the pumpkin to ensure that the pumpkin will last.
