If you grow in an area with a short growing season or need a large pumpkin variety to make up some planting time late in the season, then Early King is the variety to use. Full vines produce good yields of 22 to 28 lb. pumpkins that have medium ribs and a medium-dark orange color. The pumpkins are round to tall in shape and have strong, dark green stems. Early King also offers intermediate resistance to powdery mildew.
