Tom Church is in Florida, Margaret.

Tom, I found one reference to Seminole Squash that called it a pumpkin
variety...and several references to that variety of pumpkin.

If pumpkins, there are several good indications...when they color up
correctly and their rinds are hard, when the stem starts to shrink, and when
the rind starts to turn from very shiny to more of a matte finish.
