Review:

These little pumpkins are great producers in my zone 2 garden. They don't normally have time to fully ripen in our 90 day season, but we pick them green and they ripen beautifully in storage. They taste fantastic, and are versatile in sweet and savory recipes. They aren't the longest keepers, but normally last us at least until after Christmas (from an early September harvest) just stored in a cool room. We grow them every year, now.

Review:

These pumpkins are easy to grow, taste great, and don't mind the Texas heat. I've grown these for two years, and both years they were eaten by squash borers, but not before 3 or 4 pumpkins were almost full-sized. When the plants died, the pumpkins quickly turned orange. They tasted fine. These plants look amazing and grow like crazy. Give them plenty of room.

Review:

I have been growing New England sugar pie on and off for a number of years.It is a wonderful variety. It copes with our oddball summers which can be a combination of early summer drought and heat, mid to late summer cool and damp and the sunny warm days and cool nights of autumn.autumn. That's not an actual dependable weather pattern by the way! anything can and does happen summer weather-wise here. I'm growing them in far from ideal conditions too; in my part of Ireland the garden is situated on a Northfacing hillside overooking a valley where it is windy and cool but bright and sunny too. The soil is heavy clay with an unusual bedrock of an extinct volcano. This little fellow is dependable in these conditions anyway! The taste of the fruit is excellent too and each one the perfect size for me to make 2 modest pumpkin pies.Without a history of pumpkins it can be hard to persuade people to try growing them but one slice of the pie and they are usually convinced! Give it a try!

Review:

This is the first time I have grown pie pumpkins. Previously I couldn't grow any kind of pumpkin to save my life. This year I thought why not try again. So after getting my seeds I planted the whole package hoping for at least two or three pumpkins. I got more than I bargained for!!! Every seed sprouted and I currently have pumpkins growing from the garden to my back door and up the side of the house! The pumpkins are gorgeous!!! As far as I can count I have 25 pumpkins and more that I can't see within the pumpkin patch. I can't wait to make goodies with these beauties! Excellent pumpkin and I highly recommend!

Review:

These are easy grow, I planted a few indoors that did not transplant well (unlike the tomatoes). My husband and I decided to toss a few seeds along the fence, and use it as support. Once the little pumpkins started to grow, they grew quickly. We waited to harvest them until just before the first hard frost. I got about 7 little pumpkins, all about the same size. Great color, and they tasted great. No one could believe the pies at Thanksgiving came from our own garden. They clean up easy & like a previous poster said, you get a great seed yield to sow next year! I got 2-3 pumpkins per vine. Used local cow manure as fertilizer, and they did fantastic.
