At harvest, fruits can weigh between 5-25 kg. Pumpkins grow particularly well on the compost heap. Pre-cultivation in pots is preferable to direct seeding.
After germination, make sure access to light is not hindered. Pumpkins prefer loose, humus-rich, warm soil in a sunny, protected area. They need lots of water and warmth (consider using black plastic mulch).
Sow 2-3 seeds per 9 cm pot or per plot. Only leave the strongest plants.
