Cotton Candy Pumpkin

110 days. Cucurbita pepo. We're sorry that we can not shock you with the introduction of a Cotton-Candy pink Pumpkin. We can, however, attest to the fact that our sweet Cotton Candy Pumpkin is a glossy, milky-white color unique among the Pumpkin family! Cotton Candy produces loads of lustrous, milky-white skinned Pumpkins on sturdy, medium-sized vines. A classic Pumpkin shape, Cotton Candy is a slightly ribbed oval growing from 5- to 12-pounds. It is perfect for Halloween painting and carving as well as for use in the kitchen: its milky-white meat is sweet and most tasty. (OP.)

Easy to grow Pumpkins are best direct-sown in well-draining, fertile, 60°F soil, two weeks past the last spring frost date with plenty of room to ramble. To win a prize for size, incorporate massive amounts of compost and/or well-rotted manure into the patch. Ease up on watering towards maturity to avoid watery flesh. Harvest with a sharp knife, leaving 2" of stem when leaves wither or skin is hard enough to resist piercing with your thumbnail. Cure, leaving outdoors in the sun for ten days, or in a warm, dry room for four to five days, then store in a cool, dry place. Besides Jack-o-lanterns and pie with whipped cream, Pumpkin is big in world cuisine now: Italians adore Pumpkin-filled pasta. How about Basque soup with Cabbage, Garlic and dried Beans or an exotic and spicy Moroccan pork and Pumpkin tagine? Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 2 years.
