Pumpkin - Kakai - Cucurbita pepo

Tender Annual Semi-bush. Grow your own pumpkin seeds, with no hulls on them. Kakai is a 5-8 lb medium sized pumpkin and produces 2-3 pumpkins per plant. Orange with green-black stripes and deep ribs, it's a great display pumpkin as well as a seed source. Kakai is an Austrian pumpkin also used for pressing nutrient-rich, green pumpkin oil.

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

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost Use fiber pots or soil blocks for best results because squash don't like to be transplanted. Or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70°F. Start earlier by using mulch and row covers to warm the soil.

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? Some European studies show that green pumpkin oil pressed from the seed supports prostate health.
