PUMPKIN JACK BE LITTLE

Description
Jack-Be-Little Pumpkin Seeds (Ornamental Type) 2030. As the name implies, ‘Jack-Be Little’ produces miniature pumpkins, approximately 5 cm (2″) tall, 7.5 cm (3″) in diameter and cute as a button! Although they are edible, they are most often used for table decorations and miniature Jack o ‘Lanterns. When properly cured, these pumpkins will last up to 8 months.

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 in 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.
