The only real demand pumpkins make is for space. Any well-drained tillable soil with a pH of 6.0 -6.8 is acceptable and the use of manure is recommended. Refer to seed spacing recommendations in the chart, for each variety. Plant seed 1-2 deep into warm soil well after threat of frost has passed and give supplemental water if plants start to wilt from drought. Add bees to ensure adequate pollination. One good hive per acre is recommended by the experts. As the fruit mature, the vines will open up and reveal their “treasures” for easy picking. The fruit will tolerate light frost, but harvest before severe freezing damages their skin. Finally, use care during harvest and handling to prevent bruises and wounds that would lead to early deterioration.

Maturities are from direct seeding and should only be used for comparison.
