Description

Blaze Pumpkin is a hybrid, ornamental pumpkin with brilliant coloring and massive yields. Blaze produces big harvests of uniform, consistently-sized pumpkins that are yellow and orange striped. These bright colors are sure to pop in any garden or market stand.

Blaze Pumpkin produces fruits that are flattened with shallow ribs. Pumpkins have average 3.5" tall, 7" wide, and 3 lbs. The vigorous plants will produce up to 10-12 plants per plant, making this a home run producer for any size garden.

 

Growing Information

Pumpkins may be direct-seeded or transplanted, although we highly recommend direct seeding. To ensure a good stand, we recommend planting seeds every 12" along the intended row. Once plants emerge, thin plants to one every 2 feet. Pumpkins can be susceptible to plant diseases like downy mildew and powdery mildew if leaves receive excess moisture. As a result, we recommend using drip irrigation on winter squash to reduce plant moisture and feed plants more effectively. During periods of heavy rainfall, using a fungicide like Liquid Copper can help to alleviate disease pressure as well.

Pumpkins are a crop that will produce a one-time harvest at the end of the growing season. They should be harvested when plants die back and the fruits obtain their full color. Stem hardness is also an indication of fruit maturity. Once stems harden, fruits are ready for harvest using a set of pruning shears. Pumpkins can be stored in a cool, dry place for several months, depending on variety and sugar content. Once fruits are harvested, remove the plants from the garden to prevent any fungal spores from overwintering and becoming a problem in future years. Proper crop rotation is extremely important with all pumpkin varieties to reduce disease and pest pressure.

These are prolific producers. We planted a pack in 6 hills. They produced 71 medium sized pumpkins. This kind would be great for Farmers Markets!
