This variety produces large fruit, 10-14 inches in diameter weighing up to 25 lbs. This is the standard cornfield variety, can be grown anywhere, and is excellent for carving Jack O’Lanterns. Orange-yellow flesh is valued for making pies.

SOWING…Plant seed outdoors in late spring when ground is warm and all danger of frost is past. Make a group of 3 to 5 seeds placed in a ring about 2 inches across; cover with ½ inch of fine soil, well pressed down. Each ring of seeds is called a hill and hills should be spaced 6 to 10 feet apart.

THINNING…When plants are 2 to 3 inches tall, thin, leaving the 3 strongest plants in each hill.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 7 to 14 days depending on soil and temperature conditions.

REMARKS…May also be planted in rows 6-10 feet apart spacing plants 2-3 feet apart in the row. May also be planted in among corn. Cut from vines with pruning shears leaving 3 inches of stem.
