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.

Seeds

Hi, the Tomatoes germinated and are delicious, but the pumpkin seeds did not:( I am planning a much larger garden next spring, so will be getting a large variety of seeds. Maybe I just got a bad batch with the pumpkin seeds, and will try a different variety...thanks for listening

VERY fast growth!

This year, I was late putting in pumpkins and decided to try this hybrid, which Pinetree describes as growing to large (jack-o-lantern) size in a relatively short period of time. I planted the seeds in a mix of 50% garden soil/50% composted cow manure. Germination was a satisfactory 80% or so. After emerging, these plants have grown remarkably fast! The leaves are huge and healthy, and the vines are spreading wide, just as Pinetee said they would. I'm VERY pleased. At this point, I have no idea how many pumpkins I'll get out of my two big hills nor what they'll look like, but I'll try to "amend" this report after harvesting.

So far so good!

This was one of three pumpkin varieties I’ve purchased in recent years. Germination rates have been outstanding. I can’t speak to the finished product yet, but the vines are growing like crazy right now. Based on my experience so far, I’m very pleased.
