This will allow your larger fruit to obtain all the nutrients and water it needs to grow to this super-size.

Variety: Hundredweight (organic*)

Can be grown in: These pumpkins need to be grown outside with plenty of space. Find out more about growing pumpkins in our growing guide below.

In the kitchen: This pumpkin is great for roasting, using in a soup or to make a delicious pumpkin pie.

*Transplants suitable for organic growing.

The right site

Full sun and plenty of space is important. Pumpkins are hungry plants so make sure you dig in plenty of organic fertiliser when you plant them.

Can be grown in....

Pumpkins grow well outside, so if you have the space then go for a raised bed or similar.

How far apart?

2 metres apart.

Looking after your plants....

Plant them outside when the risk of frost has passed and the weather has warmed up. Until then, keep them in pots under cover.
