Heirloom Vegetable

This sugar pumpkin produces round fruits 20-25 cm (8-10") in diameter that are sweet, bright orange in colour and full of meaty flesh. Small Sugar is the best variety for pumpkin pies - if you don't believe us, check with your Gramma! As this variety stores reasonably well, you don't have to worry about using them all up at once.

How To Grow Sow pumpkin seed directly into the garden after the soil has warmed sufficiently - this normally occurs from very late May through June. Make 4 separate 2.5 cm (1") deep holes per hill and plant two seed in each hole - space hills about 2 m (6') apart. Remove the smaller seedling from each pair after germination. Feed plants regularly with compost and dilute soluble fertilizer and keep the ground evenly watered for best growth.
