As an added bonus, this variety actually stores reasonably well so you don't have to worry about using them all up at once.

How To Grow Sow pumpkin seed directly into the garden after the soil has warmed sufficiently - this normally occurs from very late May through June. Make 4 separate 2.5 cm (1") deep holes per hill and plant two seed in each hole - space hills about 2 m (6') apart. Remove the smaller seedling from each pair after germination. Feed plants regularly with compost and dilute soluble fertilizer and keep the ground evenly watered for best growth.
