This medium to large sized pumpkin variety is well known for its common use during the favored Halloween activity of pumpkin carving. While it is a hardier variety it is frost sensitive and must be planted during precise times to avoid frost bite and ensure the best possible germination rate. It is best to plant 2-4 weeks before the last frost of the season, early to mid spring. Avoid bruising or suffocation of the fruits to avoid rot.
