PUMPKIN Orange Hokkaido (Red Kuri) - 5 HEIRLOOM Seeds 

Grow Open-Pollinated Pumpkins - Plant Orange Hokkaido (Red Kuri) Pumpkin Seeds 

THE DELICACY FROM JAPAN - The pumpkin originating from Hokkaido Island weighs 1-2 kg and has low-fibre, firm pulp with a slightly nutty note. The softshell can be eaten. The Hokkaido pumpkin has solid meat. Although it is poor in water, it has, however, all the more valuable nutrients such as vitamins A and C, potassium and magnesium. 

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.
