Pumpkin Heirloom Seeds

Tips for Growing Great Heirloom Organic Pumpkins

Heirloom Pumpkins do not like wet, soggy soil. 

Heirloom pumpkins aren't too fussy, but if you want really big pumpkins, you should add lots of great composted manure under each hill of pumpkins.  We dig large holes out about the size of a beach ball and replace it with rich composted humus.  To that we may add a handful of bone meal and blood meal.  We stir this up really well and use the remaining soil to make our hill.  It is on top of this hill we will plant our pumpkin seed. 

Organic pumpkins are deep-rooted, water-conserving plants and should be watered deeply and infrequently to encourage good vine and root growth.

Rember organic pumkins can ramble up to 12 feet, so give them plenty of space. 

Varieties:  Some of the many heirloom organic pumpkins are AMISH PIE heirloom pumpkin, BIG MAX heirloom pumpkin, CASPER heirloom pumpkin, CHEYENNE BUSH heirloom pumpkin, CONNECTICUT FIELD heirloom pumpkin, CORNFIELD heirloom pumpkin, CUSHAW heirloom pumpkin, GREEN STRIPED heirloom pumpkin, DILL'S ATLANTIC GIANT heirloom pumpkin, FAIRYTALE heirloom pumpkin, JACK BE LITTLE heirloom pumpkin, NEW ENGLAND PIE heirloom pumpkin, ROUGE VIF d’ ETAMPES heirloom pumpkin, and YELLOW OF PARIS heirloom pumpkin.
