Description

Jack-Be-Little is a small trailing pumpkin. Each plant can produce about 8 cute round, ribbed orange fruits which can be used for miniature Halloween lanterns. The flesh can be used for pumpkin soup and the hollowed out shell can be used for serving various stuffings.

Sowing Advice

Grow in very rich soil, amended with manure, compost, or other rich source of plant nutrients. Plant in rows, 5-8 feet in both directions, sowing one seed every 6-12 inches. Or plant in hills, 5 seeds per hill, with the hills 6-8 feet apart, thinning to best three plants. Full sun, ample moisture and insect control as necessary should allow good production from the vigorous plants. Harvest in autumn when skins are too tough to be easily punctured with a thumbnail.
