1936 James Seed Co. says about small sugar pumpkin...
"The fruits are small, ribbed, about 10 inches in diameter and of 8 to 10 lbs. weight. Colour is deep orange yellow, while the flesh is thick and very sweet. The yield of these little pumpkins is astonishing, outweighing the large fruited varieties. The culture given for Cucumber will give a heavy crop of Pumpkins; or single plants 3 feet apart each way in ordinary good soil will give a good yield."
1938 Abercrombie Seed Co. says about small sugar pumpkin...
Very sweet, fine-grained, golden yellow fruit; the pumpkin for delicious pies and a grand keeper.
