Pumpkin – Connecticut Field

Cucurbita moshcata

This pumpkin is great for carving Jack-o-lanterns and gives a good amount of seeds for eating too!


Suggested Planting Requirements: 
Pumpkins prefer loam or sandy soil high in organic matter to hold large amounts of moisture.  The plants require heavy and consistent watering for best development. Preferred soil pH is between 6.0 and 7.0.

Growing Recommendations:  You may start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost or sow seed directly when soil temperature reaches 70°F.  Straw may be used to warm soil.  To prevent rotting of individual fruits, place a board or plastic under each fruit.  As with most cucurbits, mounding provides optimal growing area.

Harvesting & Storage:   For immediate use, harvest when the skin loses its sheen.  For storage, harvest fruit when fully mature.  Cut the fruit from the vine, leaving 4″-6″ of stem.  Cure for storage by setting in a warm, dry location for 1-2 weeks.  Can be stored for several months.
