Pumpkin - Small Sugar - Cucurbita pepo

Tender Annual Heirloom. A standard since the 1800s, Small Sugar is the classic pumpkin for pies and canning. The dark orange, deeply ribbed rind has fine-grained, stringless, sweet, thick, yellow flesh. Fruit grows 6"-9" in diameter, weighing 5-8 pounds each.

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.

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? Pumpkins are an excellent source of vitamin A.
