If l were to save the seeds from a pumpkin l bought from the supermarket will they be Hybrid variety? Do l have to dry the seeds out before planting them?

Pumpkins from a supermarket are likely to be hybrids . You do not need to dry the seeds before sowing but they will keep better until you want to use them, if you spread them out on some kitchen paper
