Casper Pumpkin (100 Days)

2

Has ghostly white skin with gentle ribbing and orange flesh. Yields a sweet flavor that is super for baking and pies. Weighing in at 10-15 pounds, this one will stand out brightly in a pile of carved pumpkins. 

15 seeds  

PLANTING

Cucurbita pepo

Germination: 7-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-90ºF. Planting in soil under 70ºF may result in poor germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: ½ -1” deep

Starting Indoors:  3-4 weeks before last frost. Sow 2-3 seeds per cells/pots, thin to strongest seedling. We like to use individual biodegradable paper, peat, or cow pots because it provides the least amount of stress to the roots when transplanting. Transplant after last frost when soil warms to 70ºF. Space 36-48” apart, in rows 48-60” apart.   

Sowing Outdoors: After last frost when soil reaches at least 70ºF. Sow 2-3 seeds per space/hill, 36-48” apart, in rows 48-60” apart. 

How much does a packet plant: 12-15 foot single row, 4-5 hills 

Harvest: When skin turns color and rinds are hard. Leave a few inches of the stem on for best storage potential.

Tips: Heavy feeders, requiring high nitrogen. Plant into fertile soil or amend with compost or manure. Heavy water needs, mulch and supply adequate water, at least 1” per week for optimum growth.

    Casper pumpkin

    I have found it can be a little finicky to get started, and is not a prolific producer...but I Love the results nonetheless!
