How to Sow

  • Sow in fertile, warm soil after danger of frost has passed.
  • Sow seeds directly in the garden.
  • Give large-fruited pumpkins plenty of room to ramble.
  • For improved drainage sow in mounds, or hills, of soil 12 inches in diameter, 6-8 inches tall.
  • Sow 4-6 seeds in groups about 3 inches apart. Each group should be about 4-6 feet apart. Cover with 1 inch of fine soil and firm lightly.
  • Keep evenly moist.
  • Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days.
  • Do not plant pumpkins and other squash family crops in the same spot 2 years in a row.

How to Grow

  • Thin seedlings to 2-3 per group when they are 1-2 inches high
  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating. 
  • Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1-2 inches of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It's best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • Pumpkins have both male and female flowers on the same plant. Male flowers will open first and the female flowers will open later. The female flower has a miniature fruit behind the blossom.
  • Do not move or step on vines as they are quite fragile.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
  • If you are trying to grow extra-large pumpkins, allow only one fruit per plant to mature.
  • Beds of vigorous, sprawling pumpkin vines can be bordered by corn, towering pole beans, sunflowers and other trellised or vine vegetables.

Harvest & Preserving

  • Pumpkins are ready to harvest when the rinds are hard and a rich shade of orange or white depending on the variety.
  • If a light frost kills the vines, the pumpkins are ready to harvest. Pumpkins are damaged by heavy frost.
  • Cut pumpkins from the vine with a pruning shears, leaving about 3 inches of stem attached.
  • Allow the pumpkins to cure in the sun for a week to harden skin.
  • Store pumpkins in a cool dry place.
  • Roast the seeds for a tasty snack.

Pumpkin, Mini Harvest Hybrid Blend is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a harvest! I bought these to add to my pumpkin patch for more variety to sell. These little babies showed out! I bought 2 packs of seeds and loaded up 10 crates of small pumpkins. Would of had more but weather didn't cooperate. Had more variety than is what is pictured. A definite add to my patch again next year!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little goes a LONG way! I love these little pumpkins. I have two toddlers that I'm teaching about gardening and they helped, from start to finish, to yield a HUGE crop that just keeps on giving. I grew these babies from seed (I'm on Burpee...obviously) easily and put them in the ground in early May (Zone 6B in the High Desert). They were slow to take off but really started to leap in Late July - August. Check out my photos. I planted 6 plants (two per mound) and added cages to help them start growing up. We literally have a sea of mini pumpkins taking over our modest garden, but it's great!! They are yielding DOZENS of minis, all shapes and sizes. There are mainly whites and big yellow/orange varieties, but now I'm seeing some bright oranges making their way. The kids love to hunt through the huge leaves to find them. The vines are not so tight that we can't break them if necessary. My next hunt...can I seriously cook with them? I see they're listed "edible" so I'm going to cook with three big-little guys tomorrow. Overall, I'm so happy with this variety! I didn't have to hand pollinate but we did plant wild flowers and sunflowers adjacent to the mounds; perhaps that helped. Definitely a sure-fire way to grow pumpkins! 5 stars aren't enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Tiny Pumpkins! I bought these mini pumpkins to grow in Newport Beach, CA. The plant is compact and grew about 2-3 pumpkins per plant. One plant grew a speckled yellow and orange pumpkin which I loved but it isn't pictured. I'm sticking with this seed next year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Mini Pumpkins First time I've tried an edible mini version of pumpkins and they didn't disappoint. I planted 3 hills and let 3 plants grow. I got 2 white and 1 orange. I am amazed at the quantity of white pumpkins. There are loaded. I have 5 on the orange vine and to many to count on the 2 white ones. I've already picked 12 and I know there are more than that left along with the fact they are still blooming and growing more. Just wished I had more of the other 2 colors.
