Seeding Rates

Thin when plants are 2 inches high. Mulch regularly to keep weeds down and retain moisture. Fertilize twice during the growing season with 5-10-10 or equivalent fertilizer. Water regularly but deeply.


Do not handle green pumpkins more than necessary as they bruise easily. Harvest when the vine dies.

Quality Assurance

To monogram a pumpkin, scratch a name into the fruit before the shell hardens (late August-early September). The inscription will harden over and become more distinguishable as the pumpkin matures.
