Every fall, University of Tennessee Research Horticulturalist Jason Reeves and his talented team build a monument to the harvest season. Created purely from the fruits of the field, it is both a symbol and a celebration of hard work, accomplishment and another year coming to a close. The Pumpkin Harvest Display graces the grounds of the UT West Tennessee Research & Education Center. More than five thousand pumpkins that are grown at the center for research purposes are converted to art as the studies are completed. The Pumpkin Harvest Display is typically comprised of more than 70 varieties of pumpkins, gourds and winter squash. It takes several days to complete the project. Drawing visitors to the Center, the Pumpkin Harvest Display is also an excellent outreach tool, giving UT specialists a chance to share with guests the importance of fruit and vegetable research. Pumpkin Harvest Display 2013 will be open daily to public viewing September 26 until December 1. The West Tennessee Research & Education Center is located at 605 Airways Boulevard, Jackson, TN.
