EXCLUSIVE - Grow two different sized pumpkins with our color-coded seeds. Larger 15 to 22 lb. Autumn Gold pumpkins color up early into beautiful, smooth-skinned Jack O'Lanterns, ideal for carving holiday faces. Smaller Spookie sugar pumpkins also mature early, producing an abundance of 5 to 6 pound beauties to carve or bake into tempting pies. Kids love them and they make wonderful decorations or scene-stealing centerpieces.

BEST TO START OUTDOORS

Pumpkins need full sun, rich fertile soil and warm temperatures. Wait to plant until temps. stay above 50°F (10°C) day and night. Sow groups of 2 to 3 seeds 3 feet apart and 1 inch deep in rows 4 feet apart. Thin to 1 strong seedling per group to give vines room to spread. Or, make slightly mounded hills 3 feet across and 8 ft. apart and plant 4 to 5 seeds of one variety in each hill. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, thin to 3 seedlings per hill. Protect young seedlings from marauding birds by covering with plastic berry baskets at sowing time, removing before young plants get crowded.

 

HARVEST AND USE

All pumpkins need to mature properly, so wait to pick until rinds are fully colored and tough enough to resist piercing with a fingernail and vines have died back. Then cut, leaving a good stem handle. Let them cure for 10 days in the sun, then store in a cool dry place and they'll keep for months. Carve Autumn Gold into happy or scary holiday faces and use Spookie pumpkins for smaller Jack O'Lanterns or bake them up into sweet spicy pie or savory soups.
