Pumpkin - Casper - Cucurbita pepo

Tender Annual White-skinned ornamental pumpkin with thick orange flesh of excellent eating quality. Casper's skin has less bluing than many other white varieties. Handle is tan with a corky texture. 8"-12" diameter, 10-20 pounds, use like squash or for pies.

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 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.
