PUMPKIN Buttercup - 7 HEIRLOOM Seeds
Grow Open-Pollinated Pumpkins - Plant Buttercup Pumpkin Seeds
It is early maturing, sweet and flavorful orange flesh packaged in small, round, green pumpkins. A unique and fun addition to your squash (pumpkin) garden! Its 2-3kg fruits are the perfect single meal size, and the dense, buttery flesh cooks drier than other pumpkin varieties. Generally, 10 - 12 pumpkins are produced per vine. Its dark green skin is marked with silver, making it a decorative addition to your garden as well!
Care: Sow seeds outdoors as soon as the danger of frost has passed in your area. Cover seed lightly with soil, 2 - 3 seeds together in groups. Space giants at least 3 m apart. For earlier Pumpkins start indoors 2 to 3 weeks in advance of the intended date for moving the plants to the garden. Use Jiffy pots so the container and roots can be buried without disturbing the root system. Also, make sure the pot is wet when transplanting. Sow 2 seeds per pot and do not thin. Germinates best at 22 degrees C in 7 to 10 days. Pumpkins are ripe once the stem has reached a dark green colour and is starting to wither. Ample water is needed for optimum size!
Harvest pumpkins before the first autumn frost, and when the foliage has begun to dry out. Cut the stem with a knife, leaving 7-10cm of stem on the pumpkin. Do not hold the pumpkin by the stem; if stem attachment gets broken, or any part of the pumpkin bruises, the pumpkin may rot. Do not allow harvested fruit to get wet.
A propagation note will be supplied with the seed packet for your convenience.
