For generations, this classic pumpkin has graced the fields and tables of farmers in New England. It has earned this place by being easy to grow and an enthusiastic producer of fruit that has thick, fine-grained, exceedingly sweet flesh. The bright orange, slightly ribbed fruit will be about 4-5 lbs. and average 6-8" in diameter; the perfect size for a pie or two. These plants will put out sprawling vine and are fairly hardy, but plant considerately as pumpkins do not like their vines moved or stepped on much. The richness of the flavor and the extraordinary sweetness of the yellow flesh can really stand up to baking, making this the ultimate pumpkin for pies or breads.
Days To Maturity: 80-118
Outdoor Sowing Recommended.
- Pumpkins need warm weather, well-drained soil and 6-8 hours of full sun daily.
- Prepare hills with generous amounts of manure or rich compost in them. Space them 30-36" apart.
- When ground is warm and night temperatures stay above 55°F, plant 2-3 seeds per hill at 1" deep.
- Keep soil moist until seedlings appear, then thin to 1 per hill, selecting the strongest.
- Where summers are short, plant indoors 2-3 weeks before weather is warm, then transplant to prepared hills.
