Review:

This pumpkin tried its dang best with what I didn't do for it. Planted it in new soil, sorta amended and sorta watered. I attribute both problems to my laziness. These plants grew at the bottom of my newly extended garden and the sprinkler couldn't reach them very well. They mostly drank the water that was draining down the hill. I did mulch their hills, but a little too late as I couldn't get around the vines to mulch better. Very dry California summer, drought and all. These poor plants did the best they could, producing several large orange pumpkins just like the photo. But half of them were dry and rotting from the inside out. The other half died out on my porch before Halloween, tossed 'em. Planted them in spring, they were ready by August... dang it! If I took care of these guys better, they would have been fantastic! So just so you know, take care of your pumpkins and they'll take care of you!

Review:

First year to grow these. Grown for personal use, and for market sale. Set many fruit per plant, all nice size. Some people purchased for carving & some for eating. People at market loved to hear the story behind these. We loved the pies they made!

Review:

I've tried for several years to grow pumpkins, and finally this year with this variety I've had success. I live in zone 7a (Philadelphia, PA) and planted seeds directly into mounds of compost soil and all the seeds I planted germinated. The vines can get very long, and the leaves are very big. I've got 4 or 5 nice sized pumpkins growing, though, and (barring any human or animal problems) should have nice pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns. I've hardly watered at all, mostly relying on mother nature, and did not do any fertilizing or anything beyond putting the seeds in small piles of compost soil (compost that is the consistency of soil). Thanks, Baker Creek!

Review:

We have grown these pumpkins for three years now. Always nice round large sized pumpkins; average producer; average keeper. However, the flesh is has always been stringy and very watery when cooked; somewhat like an acorn squash, but more watery. First year we thought it had crossed with our zucchini or another squash. Last year we bought new seed and did not plant any other species of pumpkin or squash in the garden....same results. If you want a jack o lantern pumpkin these are great size with firm skin. I want to be able to eat them as well, so I will be trying another breed next year.
