Can You Dry Pumpkin Seeds and Replant

If I save the seeds from a One Too Many Pumpkin, can I dry the seeds and will they grow in the spring garden?? I read somewhere that the ‘One Too Many’ seeds were open pollinated. What does this mean?

Yes, you can. Sometimes open pollinated seeds can cross pollinate with other squash, but most of the time they grow true. These articles will help with saving pumpkin seeds and explain open pollinated:

One too many is a hybrid, so it’s a 50/50 chance of getting one that looks like the one you have on hand. Open pollination means that insects, wind,or other natural way such as animal brushing against it does the pollination.
