Snowman Pumpkin Seeds
[100-105 days] A favourite of interior decorators and Halloween celebrants alike, the Snowman Pumpkin lives up to its name with startlingly smooth, snow-white skin. Carve its yellow-orange flesh and add a candle and you’ll get one of the spookiest Halloween lanterns imaginable. Or, if you’re into art, its white skin hold paint surprisingly well.
The fruits weigh in around 3-4 Kg. and are generally ready before Halloween.
Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 200cm (79").
What are eating my Snowman Pumpkins at night? Insects like Squash bugs will attack your pumpkins at night. Squash bugs can be damaging to your pumpkins when it is time to harvest, piercing your plant in multiple places causing leaf and vine damage throughout. You can spray all of your Snowman pumpkins with fungicide spray to ensure that bugs don't continue to hurt your plants production.
How big do Snowman grow from seed? Snowman pumpkins usually grow to around 45cm height and 200cm spread, bigger than your usual baking pumpkin. The best time to plant your pumpkin seeds out is in early May until June. This will give enough time for your pumpkins to have matured for harvest by Halloween.
What is wrong with my Snowman Pumpkin plant? Lack of water can cause your pumpkin leaves to begin to wilt. Your plant will need moist soil with well-draining soil to thrive. A lack of water can cause roots to start to die and won't take in any water causing your pumpkins to lose colour and die.
