Suggested Planting Requirements: Pumpkins prefer loam or sandy soil high in organic matter to hold large amounts of moisture. Plants require heavy and consistent watering for the best development. Preferred soil pH is between 6.0 and 7.0.

Growing Recommendations: You may start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost or sow seed directly when the soil temperature reaches 70°F.  Straw may be used to warm soil. To prevent the rotting of individual fruits, place a board or plastic under each fruit. As with most cucurbits, mounding provides an optimal growing area.

Harvesting & Storage: For immediate use, harvest when the skin loses its sheen. For storage, harvest fruit when fully mature. Cut fruit from the vine leaving 4″-6″ of the stem. Cure for storage by setting in a warm, dry location for 1-2 weeks. Can be stored for several months.
