When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperature has risen above 60°F.

When to start inside: Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 3 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Sow in pulp pots that can be planted directly in the ground. Transplant when plants have 2 sets of true leaves.

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 will rot. Brush off any dirt or leaves. Cure in a sunny window or porch at 75-80°F for 1-2 weeks before eating or storage. Do not allow harvested fruit to get wet.
