Planting Guide

To cultivate your Big Max Pumpkins successfully:

  • Ensure they receive plenty of sunlight and have ample room to grow.
  • Once the frost has passed, sow groups of 3 to 6 seeds in fertile, warm soil, about 1 inch deep and spaced 4 to 6 feet apart.
  • Expect seedlings to emerge within 7 to 14 days.
  • When seedlings reach 1 to 2 inches in height, thin them down to the 2 to 3 strongest in each group.
  • For extra-large pumpkins, allow only 1 fruit per plant to mature.

Harvesting Guide

Reap the fruits of your labor with these harvesting tips:

  • Your pumpkins should be ready to harvest approximately 110 days after planting, once the rinds are hard and deep orange in color.
  • If a light frost kills the vines, harvest the pumpkins as soon as possible.
  • Use pruning shears to cut pumpkins from the vine, leaving about 3 inches of stem attached.
  • Allow the pumpkin skin to harden in the sun for about a week.
