New Hampshire State Fruit

New Hampshire State Fruit

New Hampshire calls the pumpkin its state fruit, the white potato its official vegetable. New Hampshire was supposedly the first state where potatoes were cultivated, while the pumpkin was immortalized by a famous pumpkin festival held in Keene, for more than two decades.

Sadly, the festival was too successful, and the small-town flavor was eroded by growing crowds of celebrants, including plenty of drunk and rowdy college students. Eventually, the festival was moved to Laconia.
