Pumpkin Jap (or Kent)
Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo
Delicious and tasty round pumpkins with excellent flavour and good storage ability. Plants perform well in poorer soils as they prefer lower nutrient levels than most vegetable crops.`
We hope you enjoy these vegetable seeds, just another great example of vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
How To Grow
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. Harvest when the stalks become dry. Fruits store for 4-5 months if kept dry and uninjured.
When To Plant
Spring to Summer.
