If you’re interested in making pumpkin pies, you will want a sweet pumpkin variety such as our Small Sugar pumpkins.
For pumpkin carving, look for size and shape, like our #1 grower preferred variety Gladiator pumpkins, Magic Lantern pumpkins, Howden pumpkins, or ghostly Lumina pumpkins.

If you’d like to grow huge pumpkins for competitions, select from giant pumpkin varieties, such as Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkins, Prizewinner pumpkins, or Big Moose pumpkins. For a mix of several pumpkin types, try Harris’ Pumpkin Collection.

Pumpkins are quite easy to grow. Choose a patch that receives full sunlight, and make sure to sow seeds the proper distance apart. Refer to seed spacing recommendations for each variety. Weeds can inhibit fruit quality, so using black plastic mulch will help control weed growth.

Plant pumpkin seeds 1-2" deep into warm soil well after threat of frost has passed. The pumpkin fruit will tolerate light frost, but it is best to harvest them before severe freezing so that their skin is not damaged. Use care during harvest and handling to prevent bruises and wounds that can lead to early deterioration.


  OUR COMPANY

The Harris Seeds company began its catalog operation in 1879. It evolved from the efforts of Joseph Harris who became extremely successful in the selection of superior strains of vegetables and grains. The company became wildly popular because of his basic business philosophy - "Offer my customers a quality product at a fair price and they will return."
