WEE BE LITTLE PUMPKIN (85 days)

Germ 7-10 days
This miniature true pumpkin produces fruit that are 2 1/2” in both width and height. An All America winner, plants are bushy and compact and produce unique ornamental pumpkins. Also has good flavor for eating. Try this: cut off the top, remove the seeds and pulp, fill with pumpkin pie filling, and bake on a cookie sheet at 350° for 25-30 minutes. Serve as individual desserts at a harvest party. 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.
