One of the very newest introductions, this petite climbing Pumpkin will ascend to 2 metres or more before producing a heavy crop of fist-sized fruits - often as many as 14 per plant. It is absolutely brilliant for soups and also after being roasted in the oven, but is also used for decorative purposes.
In early spring sow seeds vertically, in a warm place, 2 cm. deep, one to a 9cm. pot. They may rot off before they germinate if sown flat. When they have 5 or 6 leaves, harden them off by standing them outside during the day and plant out once frosts are over. You can also sow them direct into the ground outside from April to May if warm enough. They are heavy feeders, and prefer soil dug in with manure or well-rotted compost. Never let young plants become root bound, and do not disturb the roots in transplanting. If needed, provide climbing support.
