How to Grow

Sow 3 seeds directly in garden soil/hill with 2 to 3 foot spacing.  These large vines require at lest 3 feet of growing area, and can be trained. Only requires moderate watering, do not over water. Pumpkins require pollination, so be sure to plant a few flowers in your vegetable garden to attract pollinators. Matures in about 100 days from direct sowing. Pick pumpkins when rind/skin just loses it glossy sheen.
