Location: Pumpkins need a sunny, sheltered place, with enough moisture and nutrients. Particularly favorable affects a loose, airy soil with lots of humus. Well suited is a place at the foot of a compost heap.
This spectacular variety will certainly impress the neighbours, but be sure to allow plenty of space for its long trailing stems.
Even if you don’t break any records, the large fruits will stand well for a long period making them perfect for carving with the kids.
Sow pumpkin seed indoors from April to May for transplanting later on.
However, this climbing pumpkin can also be used as normal as any other pumpkin. It has delicious orange-yellow flesh with bright orange peel and can be used for canning (sweet and sour), for soups, jams, breads, cakes, as vegetables for meat and fish.
