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.

Very prolific!

5 out of 5 stars Oct 13, 2020
I grew honeynut, spaghetti, lakota, jarrahdale, and sugar pie squash this year. Each honeynut produced 4-5 small squash per plant before the plant died off early on in the season. I planted 4-5 of the lakota and only got one fruit total. I planted 3-4 jarrahdale, and got one large pumpkin and one small one. I planted 3-4 spaghetti squash plant, and each plant did produce 1-2 squash before dying. Finally the sugar pie plants each produced several pumpkins and continued on through the season. It was a top performer!
