Review:

Second year trying to grow theses. I added a trulles which this grew up well. More than one plant grew several feet but ended up yellowing a lot in the NC heat despite being well irrigated. I may try again later in the season. The two flowers that fruited yellowed quickly so I've yet to get any pumpkins. Seems like the plant keeps growing out and dying close to the plants original base.

Review:

I got a pack of these seeds from baker creek and planted 4 seeds in a section of my small garden. 3 of the plants grew well but 2 were damaged by a very windy rainy day. A sunflower grew from the 4th seed... I did not have any sunflower seeds to plant at the time I planted these so I'm not sure what happened here except maybe baker creek accidentally mixed one in. The seed was very similar to a pumpkin seed in color. Anyone know of any sunflowers like that? I only got 1 pumpkin from my plant, a nice 20lb one, but I was expecting a more orange colored flesh, not a creamy yellow-ish color. Just canned it hoping it will taste good.

What are the pros? Grows fast

What are the cons? 3 pumpkins from 2 plants

Review:

I planted this variety FAR too early (around early March) because I'm a new gardener and my 2-year-old daughters love "plumply dumply pumpkins". It took FOREVER for them to germinate, but bear in mind we had an unusually cold spring, so it's no surprise. Once the weather began to warm up, they took off, often showing more than a foot of growth between checking the plant in the morning and again in the evening. It's wild! Of the 4 seeds I had, 3 germinated and the plant in the northwest raised bed has completely run rampant, taking over more than half the 15-foot garden and cascading off the edge of the bed after I trained it back on itself to grow in an oval. I thinned down to two plants - one in each bed - and the NW bed has two pumpkins at appx 12 and 5 pounds, and the NE bed has a single pumpkin growing at about 8 pounds. They're still completely yellow, but will probably be ready before Halloween, which is both expected and OK. I'll update when they ripen.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, Pretty,

What are the cons? Not enough!

Review:

I grew this and gave them no fertilizer, I didn't clip the vines or really take care of it at all but it still produced a big pumpkin! The fruit lasted till next season! Only problem is that it really only produced one or two mature pumpkins.
