Delicious Pie

Planted these late in western Washington and they thrived in this dry summer. 4 fruit per vine and all were nice form and color. Pumpkin pie was the star at the Thanksgiving table. Nice flavor and smooth texture. Snacked on roasted seeds all day.

First time pumpkin grower

Great germination. Ended up with three plants and each produced well, several fruit per plant that made it to harvest and curing. Will plant again. Have not grown pie pumpkins before so not sure what to expect. Not as sweet as I was hoping but still very useable (I use as a baking replacement for eggs as well as pie) and so far has stored well and loving the seeds both for eating and saving. Very nice pumpkin.

1 out of 5

I planted 5 seeds. All germinated and sprouted. I started a bit late, and it was kind of hot and dry. I tried to keep them watered but they all struggled. I lost one after the other. However, one survived enough until we got a rainy patch for a few weeks in the middle of summer, then it took off and went wild. That single vine is completely covering an area at least 20x20 and is trying to grow beyond that as well. Quite a few pumpkins and it's still flowering in mid Sept. Sadly it seems to have fallen prey recently to mildew that is attacking at least 50% of all the leaves. I'm treating it and hoping it can last until harvest.

Easy to Grow & Keeps Well

This sweet pumpkin was a joy to grow. My garden is near the coast and I was afraid that the pumpkins might not mature, but they did and I ended up with quite a few to can for late winter and have enjoyed them fresh until Valentine's Day. I'm impressed!

Cucurbita spp. This traditional ornament of the autumn harvest is good for much more than jack-o-lanterns and pies. High in fiber and essential minerals, their colorful orange flesh signifies an abundance of the antioxidant beta-carotene.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of direct seeding.

• Pumpkins require uniform irrigation totaling 15-20 inches of water during the growing season
• Bee attractant flowers or beehives will help yields — misshapen or non-developing fruit is often the result of poor pollination

Direct Sowing
• Plant after frost danger when soil warms to 65°F
• Work in shovelful of compost and 1/2 cup TSC's Complete fertilizer into hill
• Keep soil evenly moist but not wet as too much moisture causes seed to rot
• Bush varieties: sow 3-4 feet apart
• Vining varieties: sow 4-5 feet apart

• Start indoors 3-4 weeks prior to anticipated transplant date in 4 inch pots
• Work in shovelful of compost and 1/2 cup TSC's Complete fertilizer into hill
• Transplant carefully as to not disturb roots

Pests & Diseases
• Common pests: Cucumber beetles and squash bugs, stink bugs
• Pest control: Pyrethrin
• Common diseases: Various wilts, leaf spots mildews, and various viral diseases
• Disease prevention: 3-4 year crop rotation, and fungicide applications

• Leave on vine until fully mature, rinds should be firm
• Pumpkins can tolerate a light frost, but must be protected from a hard frost
