Description

Organic Squash: Pumpkin Jack O Lantern. Cucurbita maxima.

Medium sized orange globes that also taste great. Ready in about 4 months.

How to grow:
Sow seeds in pots on heat in April/May. Grow on till there are three true leaves then plant out in the ground when there’s no chance of a frost. Covering with fleece offers some protection if you get caught out. Plant 80cms apart and keep well fed and watered, preferably from below.

Problem solving:
Keep slugs off when young. Can get mildew on the leaves, planting in full sun helps this, remove any badly affected leaves.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Versitile in the kitchen, can be added to soups, stews and great in peanut butter curry. You can bake wedges in the oven – drizzle with oil and season. Hollow out, stuff with lots of veggie delights and bake. Can make sweet pumpkin pie or my favourite pumpkin crumble.

Cultural history:
This creeping vine in the cucurbitaceae family originates from India, cultivated for 1,000’s of years.

Avg contents: 15 seeds.
