Everybody has a pumpkin head in their life. You know, that person who is ready to start decorating for fall as soon as the fireworks cease popping on the Fourth of July. These gourd hoarders start collecting decorative pumpkins the moment they appear in the store. H-E-B is here for it—they love the pumpkin heads as much as the pumpkin heads love fall fun.

Some folks are skeptical about pumpkin spice season. We don’t understand it, but we respect their right to consume boring beverages and baked goods. That being said, everyone gets a fuzzy feeling about the first crisp day of fall—especially here in Texas. The sight of pumpkins popping up in stores is a big part of that. H-E-B has a vast array of Texas Roots pumpkins, grown right here in Texas, to choose from. Whether you need a pie pumpkin, a future jack-o-lantern, or decorative gourds, H-E-B has you covered.
