Today I Learned: Fairytale Is an Actual Pumpkin Variety

Last weekend I came across a sign at a pumpkin patch that struck my fancy: "Fairytale." At first I thought the establishment and I were simpatico in our whimsical imaginations, but after a bit of research I learned that Fairytale is a pumpkin variety. It's of the French heirloom type with a flat, scallop shape and weighs about 15 pounds. 

TL;DR: It's Cinderella's carriage.
