Sow seed direct in a sunny site in late spring after soil has reached at least 20C (70F) and after the danger of frost has passed. Can be started 3 weeks earlier indoors in plantable paper or fibre pots. Warm soil is a must – like most of the cucumber/squash/pumpkin family, seed will quickly rot if planted in soil that is cooler than recommended. Seed typically germinates in 7-14 days. These are extensively vining plants so before planting dig in well-rotted manure or organic matter and work in a balanced granular fertilizer. Bi-weekly applications of a balanced water-soluble fertilizer through the growing season is highly beneficial. Keep the soil evenly moist. This is a super storage pumpkin when properly cured.
