Pumpkins in Pots? Yes you can!!

Our Casperita, Orangita and Black Kat pumpkin varieties varieties grow their pumpkins from the crown of the plant and only have short vines. Each plant will produce 5-8 pumpkins weighing about 1 pound each. Looking to grow a larger pumpkin in a pot? Try “Scream II".

  5. Place in sunny location slightly off the ground
  6. Water regularly; sometimes daily in hot weather
