Pumpkin is requiring lots of suns and good drainage to develop optimally and growing best at temperatures between 18 and 25°C (65–75°F). Pumpkin will yield best if grown in fertile, well-draining soil, rich in organic matter, But Pumpkins should be planted in full sun and provided with ample soil moisture due to their shallow root system.
Vining varieties can grow to very large sizes and require a good deal of space. Smaller bush varieties are available for more modest spaces.
Plants can be sown both indoors and out require slightly moist soil for germination, care should be taken to avoid overwatering. General care and maintenance Pumpkin vines are sprawling and require plenty of space to grow. Shallow watering or watering less frequently encourages a shallow root system. The fruit is ripe when the colour changes uniformly and the rind becomes hard. It is best to harvest the fruit with a portion of stem as the fruit will keep better.
