*Non-warranty – Every care is exercised to give all customers seed of good quality that will prove profitable and satisfactory, yet the following clause is to be made plain.

Any plant materials purchased in the spring which fail to grow will be replaced or credit voucher issued, one time, provided they have been properly cared for and we are notified by October 1st of the year it was purchased.

Note-Seeds are living products that depend on many factors such as proper planting time and technique, depth of sowing, soil, proper germination environment, fertility, disease control, insect control, and reasonable weather for direct sown seeds. If any of these factors are not right, it may cause the seed to not perform and because most, if not all, of these factors are out of our control, most of the success of these seeds is in the hands of the grower. If they have been cared for properly and still fail to grow, we will replace the seed or issue a credit voucher, one time. We guarantee that the seeds we sell conform to the label: however, our liability is limited to the purchase price of the seed.

Growing Tips

Growers with a shorter season may want to start their pumpkins indoors about 4 weeks before last frost. Do this in a peat pot, as pumpkin plants to no transplant well.

Make sure to harden your seedlings off by exposing them to outside temperatures and weather for several hours per day when the average daily temperature reaches 60°F.

Plant in rows that are 10-12’ apart, or hill plant with two plants each about 8-10’ apart.

Do not plant with potatoes.

Culinary Uses

There are many uses for this type of pumpkin. The pie pumpkin is what gives autumn its flavor. From roasted pumpkin, to pumpkin puree for use in breads, pies, cakes, pancakes, and pretty much any other dish that would benefit from a pumpkin flavor.

Harvesting Crops

When the stem becomes dry on the pumpkin vine, it’s about time to harvest your pumpkins. Check the toughness of the pumpkins skin. If you can still puncture it with your fingernail, leave it to toughen for a little bit longer.

Cut the pumpkins off the vine with about 2-3” of stem length remaining on the top of the pumpkin. Allow the stem to harden and shrivel by sun curing your harvest. Pumpkins will keep well in the garden or if kept in a 45-50°F location and can last up to 5 months.

Harvesting Seed

After leaving the pumpkin to cure, your seeds will be ready for harvest. If you have ever carved pumpkin, you already know how to harvest your seeds.

Remove the pulp and seeds and rinse off the pulp (we use a colander and faucet). Put the remaining seeds in a bowl of water to further separate the pulp from the seeds.

The seeds you want are the ones that sink. Remove these and spread them out to dry for a few weeks. Make sure to mix them around at times to make sure that all sides are drying evenly.

Store safely for next season. Pumpkin seeds are usually viable for 4 years depending on storage.
