    Hi sunnysarah, there is a compact F1 variety I grow called 'Summer Ball' which produces lots of tasty small yellow pumpkins (up to 6" diameter) which can also be picked young and used as courgettes.  It's a prolific cropper.  I've not tried it in a pot but as it doesn't produce long trailing vines and all of the fruit come from the short centre stem I think it would grow ok in a large pot (say 15" diameter or more.)  T&M and Suttons (amongst others) have seeds for this one.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
