50 Pumpkin Seeds - Sugar Pie

85-100 days. Sugar Pie Pumpkin Seeds. Cucurbita pepo. Non-GMO. Heirloom. Also widely known as the New England pumpkin, the Sugar Pie is a true American heirloom and culinary standard. Non-GMO Sugar Pie pumpkin is can be harvested as early as 85 days, producing a small, round, and somewhat flatted pumpkin that is 7-10" wide. New England Pumpkin is sweet and fine-grained, and this makes it a perfect baking pumpkin. It stores well. This is the perfect small-to-medium pumpkin to grow in your garden.

Sowing: Gardeners with short growing seasons may want to start the Small Sugar pumpkin seeds they order in bulk indoors a month before the last expected frost. Since pumpkins do not take well to transplanting, peat pots are the best option. Plant two seeds per pot, later clipping off the weaker seedling. Harden the seedlings by exposing them to the weather for several hours at a time during the week before transplanting. About a week after the last frost or when the soil temperature reaches an average of 60 degrees F, plant the seedlings in very rich soil 8-10' apart in rows 10-12' apart. Another option is to plant the seedlings in hills of two, 8-10' apart. To direct sow, plant the seeds a week after frost 1/2" deep, 3-4' apart and thin to 8-10' apart. For companion planting benefits, plant Small Sugar pumpkin seeds along with corn but avoid planting them with potatoes.

Growing: Since pumpkin seedlings do not tolerate frost, provide protective coverings if cold weather threatens. Keep the soil moist at all times, but avoid getting the leaves wet as this can cause diseases such as rot or mildew. When the vines begin to develop, a layer of mulch will help conserve moisture and control weeds; mulch also will keep the pumpkins clean and protect them from too much soil contact. By midsummer, pinch off all the blooms to concentrate the plant's energy on the developing pumpkins.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
