PUMPKIN Jack Be Little - 7 HEIRLOOM Seeds
Grow Open-Pollinated Pumpkins - Plant Jack Be Little Pumpkin Seeds
While they are edible and actually quite tasty, most growers choose Jack Be Little pumpkin seeds for the compact vines and tiny, undeniably cute miniature pumpkins that follow. Each flattened, deeply-ribbed fruit measures only 5cm (2") tall and about 13cm (5") across the top. If cured fully on the vine, the fruits will last as ornaments for as long as twelve months! Jack Be Little makes perfect little bright orange pumpkins for autumn decorations, and each plant produces up to eight fruits. Be sure to keep one or two for dicing into autumn soups or slicing thin for tempura.
Matures in 95 days (Open-pollinated seeds)
Care: Sow seeds outdoors as soon as danger of frost has past 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 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 degree C in 7 to 10 days. Pumpkins are ripe once the stem has reached a dark green color and is starting to wither. Ample water is needed for optimum size!
Harvest pumpkins before the first autumn frost, and when foliage has begun to dry out. Cut 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.
Propagation note will be supplied with the seed packet for your convenience.
