Review:

A few years ago some of my New England pie pumpkins in winter storage went too soft for me to use. I tossed them out into a snowy area where a patch of thick weeds always grew each year, due to the heavy brush which made it impossible to clear out. The following summer there were pumpkins growing all through the weeds, dodging the dried brush and fallen tree branches. I harvested quite a few of them and saved their seeds. Now that I am living where I can once again have another garden, I will be planting these seeds this coming summer. The flavor of these pumpkins is very pumpkin-y, very sweet. It is the stuff that dreams of pumpkin pies are made of.

Review:

I planted 1 package of Bakers Creek Seed Sugar Pie pumpkins 3 seasons ago, had excellent germination, they were ready & very lovely by beginning of September. Left a few in the garden and they just kept regrowing without any problem. Very prolific and tasty. Excellent for pumpkin pies!

Review:

This is my new favorite pie pumpkin. I harvested in late September and let the pumpkins harden in the sun until now (late October). I just baked one 8-9 inch pumpkin cut in half for 45 minutes at 350. The taste is remarkable. So sweet! I don't think I need any sugar before it goes into the pie. I'll do more of these next year for sure.

Review:

I am a first time gardener, but I do a charity bake sale of 50 pumpkin pies every Fall, and have done for the last 18 years. So I thought, why haul my pumpkins home, ON MY BIKE, when I can grow them vertically? Oh, how naive. I have a little shop of horrors sized pumpkin vines, and I mean that in the best way, since I have a demented sense of humor. I have 3 times the growth I expected, and have already counted 17 softball sized gourds growing, and there are still tons of blossoms and more vine growth happening! I read up about the male/female, and haven't had to hand pollinate yet, and won't think I will. I pulled out some nasty juniper hedges that were dried up and spider web infested, and spent 3 months fertilizing and enriching the soil before planting the pumpkin seeds. Thank you!!!

What are the pros? rich soil

What are the cons? too much water

Review:

These germinated fast, and took off. I planted a lot of flowers this year to attract bees, but have still had to self pollenate them. Not that big of a deal. They are growing like gangbusters.
