JACK BE LITTLE PUMPKIN (85 days)

2

Germ 7-10 days
You will love these tiny pumpkins! 3-5”in diameter, flattened, heavily grooved, with a bright orange color and very prolific. Can be grown on a fence to save space. Kids love them and they make great decorations. 15 seeds

 

PLANTING:

Indoors- Individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2”-1” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant 36” apart after last frost without disturbing the roots

Outdoors- 1/2”-1” deep after last frost, in warm soil at least 70 degrees. Sow a few seeds per space/hill with 24-36” between, providing the furthest spacing for the larger varieties

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

Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth. Fertilize on a regular basis by watering with compost tea. Turn pumpkins carefully to keep a uniform shape.

Adorable and productive

So easy to grow up the fence in a corner of the garden! It kept setting fruit later than all my other pumpkins. Each fruit is a perfect mini pumpkin. Such a hit with the kids.

Magical little pumpkins

These are pure magic.. I lashed together an arbor of saplings cut from my property. The structure measured 8' tall by 8' deep by 6' wide. It should have been a bit wider because the 5 Jack Be Little Pumpkin plants that I put in beside it clambered over the structure with amazing speed. Very quickly I had a thickly covered tunnel of huge leaves with dappled sunlight peeking through. I had not anticipated the leaves would also jut inwards into the shade, figuring they would all face outward into the sun. Next year the arbor will be wider as it is the perfect place to put in a couple of comfortable lawn chairs and sip iced tea.. Back to the magic... Once the big yellow blossoms open and the sunbeams pour through them there is a glow that causes people to gasp. The bumblebees drift in and out covered in pale pollen oblivious to the rest of the world. The show isn't over yet, next you get the pumpkins. They start as perfect smooth shiny butter yellow balls. As they grow, they flatten, deepen in color to a beautiful orange and develop their characteristic ridges. They hang like little lanterns from the ceiling of the arbor. You will have them in all stages of development at the same time. Beautiful. At the end of the season I harvested 26 pumpkins, each absolutely perfect in every way. Grow these pumpkins, they are a joy.
