Pumpkin - Jack Be Little - Cucurbita pepo
Tender Annual Grow your own mini pumpkins. These bright orange, ribbed cuties are just 2" tall and 3"-4" wide. Use for decor, crafts, or as individual serving dishes. Short days to maturity and short 5' vines make them easy to grow up trellises. They store well too, up to 1 year.
Soil and Water: Pumpkins prefer loam or sandy soil high in organic matter which 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 and Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost or sow seed directly when soil temperature reaches 70°F. To begin growing earlier, use mulching plastics and row covers to warm the soil.
Harvesting and 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.
