Pumpkin Sweet Dumpling Seeds
Info: The pumpkin Sweet Dumpling is a real eye-catcher with its extraordinary color. The deep ribbed fruit has an initially white bowl with dark green stripes and dots. Due to its durability of up to 4 months it is excellently suitable as an autumn decoration. Its aromatic fruit is apricot-colored and tastes chestnut-like. Ideal for filling, as a vegetable garnish, for soups or baking pumpkin bread.
Sowing & cultivation: Pumpkin plants need a lot of space as creeping plants and a good nutrient supply. The soil should therefore be profound and nutritious. From mid-May can be sown directly into the open field. Depending on the variety a plant needs up to 2m² of space. Abundant irrigation is very important, especially in the beginning. A typical pumpkin problem are snails. Try as protection a thick ring of sawdust around the young plant. It should be fertilized with a few horns, four weeks later with full fertilizer. The harvest begins in September and lasts until the frost.
Distances: 1,5-2m row distance, in the row approx. 1m.
