Cucurbita

Grow two different sized pumpkins with our color-coded seeds. Larger 15 to 22 lb. Autumn Gold pumpkins color up early into beautiful, smooth-skinned Jack O'Lanterns, ideal for carving holiday faces. Smaller Spookie sugar pumpkins also mature early, producing an abundance of 5 to 6 pound beauties to carve or bake into tempting pies. Kids love them and they make wonderful decorations or scene-stealing centerpieces.

 
Seeds are color-coded with USDA food grade stain to distinguish varieties.

BEST TO START OUTDOORS

Pumpkins need full sun, rich fertile soil and warm temperatures. Wait to plant until temperatures stay above 50F (10C) day and night. Sow groups of 2 to 3 seeds 3 ft. apart and 1 in. deep in rows 4 ft. apart. Thin to 1 strong seedling per group to give vines room to spread. Or, make slightly mounded hills 2 to 3 ft. across and 8 ft. apart and plant 4 to 5 seeds  of one variety in each hill. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, thin to 3 seedlings per hill. Protect young seedlings from marauding birds by covering with plastic berry baskets at sowing time, removing before young plants get crowded.

HARVEST AND USE

All pumpkins need to mature properly, so wait to pick until rinds are fully coloured and tough enough to resist piercing with a fingernail and vines have died back. Then cut, leaving a good stem handle. Let them cure for 10 days in the sun, then store in a cool dry place and they'll keep for months. Carve Autumn Gold into happy or scary holiday faces and use Spookie pumpkins for smaller Jack O'Lanterns or bake them up into sweet spicy pie or savory soups.
