So like the title says...im already thinking of next years growing season. I've already got it set in my head to make raised beds, which I'm fine with. Already have the veggies picked out too!

But I recently discovered the concept of "bush" pumpkin variety. I see there is a bush pie type and it seems I've found a bush carving type as well which would be awesome for a raised bed situation. The description stated that the vines do not typically grow more than 3 feet ideal for raised beds or tight gardening.

Does or has anyone grown the bush variety of both or either of the carving and pie pumpkins? I'm curious if it's legitimate or it's a waste of time and money. I have regular Vining this year and they've overtaken the rest of my garden it's insane.

Thanks all!

A bush pumpkin is news to me. I would love to (try to) grow those. My goats love pumpkins, but the vines really are crazy and overtake everything.

I hope someone who has some experience with the bush ones can weigh in.

Me too! I'm seeing a bunch of bush variety that are pie pumpkins but seems only one company so far has carving bush available so im leary of the legitimacy of them. Doing raised beds and limited space I want to know the same!
