Pumpkin - Big Max - Cucurbita maxima

Tender Annual This pumpkin is perfect for Halloween carving with defined ribs and nice handles. The fruit is 17"-18" in diameter and tends to be round with rough, red-orange skin and bright, yellow-orange 3"-4" thick flesh. As an exhibition pumpkin, it can grow to over 100 lb. It's also good for pies and canning.

Soil & Water: Pumpkins prefer loam or sandy soil high in organic matter to hold large amounts of moisture. Requires heavy and even water. Preferred soil pH is between 6.0-7.0.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost or sow seed directly when soil temperature reaches 70F. To begin growing earlier, use mulching plastics and row covers to warm the soil. Place a board underneath the fruit to help prevent rotting.

Harvesting & Storage: For immediate use, harvest when the skin loses its sheen. For storage, harvest pumpkins when fully mature. Cut the fruit from the vine, leaving 4"-6" of stem. Cure for storage by setting in a warm, dry location for 1-2 weeks.

Did You Know? The preferred pumpkin for professional pumpkin contestants. To achieve maximum size, grow one pumpkin per vine and water and fertilize regularly.
