Pumpkin is a common and popular fall/winter staple all over North America, being used for everything from pies to decor. This particular variety produces pumpkins with an attractive, white rind. They’ll do well as both a unique, eye-catching Jack O’ Lantern this Halloween, or in all your favourite pumpkin based dishes.
Care for pumpkins is similar to other squashes. Their soil should be kept moist and well-watered, particularly during dry periods in the summer. They require plenty of space, so ensure you plant them in a spot away from other plants. They require full sun. As with other squashes, pumpkins are heavy feeders and require a fertile soil. Add in organic compost or manure to enhance your soil before planting.
