The ghost and goblins will be hanging around your pumpkin patch well before Halloween if they discover the large white pumpkins this variety produces. Growing to 20-25cm (8-10") in diameter and weighing in at 5-7kg (11-15lbs), these globular shaped pumpkins are perfect for carving or for painting designs on. Harvest in September for better white colour as environmental stress may cause a blue tinge on the skin. Maturity 95 days.

How To Grow Pumpkin is a hot weather crop. They need full sun and deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Sow seed directly outdoors from late May through early June 2.5 cm (1") deep in hills 2.4 m (8') apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Pumpkins do not transplant well--use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. For competition sized pumpkins, allow only two pumpkins per plant to mature. Protect mature pumpkins from frost and cold temperatures.
