Jap (or Kent) Pumpkin

(Cucurbita species)

Sow seeds in clumps of 2-3 seeds, spacing each clump 60cm (2ft) apart. Place the seeds on their edges to ensure they don't rot and keep moist. Soil must be warm and should not be very fertile – over-fertile soils result in poor fruit growth and excessive leaves.

Thin to the strongest seedling in each group when they emerge. Provide liquid feeds and if needed, hand-pollinate the female flowers. Likes rich soil. Harvest as vine dies off and stem dries out. Sow after last frost. 

Pumpkins will store for 4-5 months if kept dry and uninjured.  Excellent nutty flavour with firm light orange flesh. Good medium sized pumpkin with fruit around 5kg.

10 seeds per packet
