Jack O' Lantern Pumpkin Seeds
[110 days] Jack O’ Lantern Pumpkins are splendidly large, orange pumpkins that mature just in time for Halloween carving. Beautiful as decorations, they can also be eaten like any other pumpkin.
If you’re looking to get really huge pumpkins, select just one or two of the first pumpkins on the vine (try to pick those with the best shape). Remove the others and any that form in the future. This will allow the plant to give all its energy to the 1-2 you select.
How big do Jack O' Lantern grow from seed? Jack O' Lantern pumpkins usually grow to between 2kg and 5kg, bigger than your usual baking pumpkin.
How long does it take to grow Jack O' Lantern pumpkins from seed? Jack O' Lantern pumpkins take about 100 to 120 days before being ready to harvest after the seeds are planted.
Should I soak pumpkin seeds before planting to help germination? You can soak your pumpkin seeds in hot water before planting for an hour or two. Jack O' Lantern pumpkin seeds have a hard seed coat so doing this can help soften the shell aiding the germination process and increasing your success rate.
