Harvesting: Harvest pumpkins before the first fall frost, and when foliage has begun to dry out. Cut stem with a knife, leaving 3"–4" of stem on the pumpkin. Do not hold the pumpkin by the stem; if stem attachment gets broken, or any part of the pumpkin bruises, the pumpkin may rot. Brush off any dirt or leaves. Ideally, cure at 80°-85°F and 80–85% humidity or a warm, sunny spot with good air circulation for 1 to 2 weeks before eating or storage. Do not allow harvested fruit to get wet.

Awesome - but A LOT of work for 1 mini pumpkin!

Owner Response: Hi Katie, These are usually more productive. Feel free to contact our horticulturists at horticulturists@botanicalinterests.com to see if there are some easy tips to help with productivity. Proper pollination is becoming a bigger issue as native bee populations shrink.

I don't know how many plants I actually ended up planting, but I had oodles of adorable little pumpkins! I'm guessing 6 plants each produced 6 pumpkins each. And I think they would have kept producing except we got frost. I placed them on top on my fence posts for decoration and they looked so cute! They did grow everywhere - most grew up the side of the garden cage (8 feet tall) which was perfect. Very fun and easy!

So easy to grow! I trained mine to grow up along a chain link fence this year. It was fun to watch the male and female flowers bloom and see the tiny pumpkins at the base of the flower develop into a pumpkin. Planted the seeds the second week of June, and harvested 22 full-sized pumpkins the second week of September.

These are sitting on my table as Halloween decoration. I loved growing these cute pumpkins. I plan to try to eat them---even if they aren't very good, I'll grow again next year for the decoration.
