Farmer John's Favorite Pumpkin for Decoration
I think this is the most classicly shaped heirloom pumpkin for decoration. It has such a rich rust-orange color, contrasting sea-green long stems and deep well prenounced ribs. The color is unlike any other pumpkin and the skin has a shiny coating. They are tall and well shaped the way you would want a pumpkin to look. Most of the pumpkins are 20# plus in good soil. Ol Zeb's makes an incredible dislplay in mass. Perfect for attracting attention to fruit stands, wineries or any business.
I purchased about 900 seeds this spring and have them all planted in our new pumpkin patch. So far the germination rates have been well above 85% and all the plants are healthy and putting on their first sets of fruit. Can't wait to see 1000 pumpkins in the patch! I have a video series on preparing, planting, and caring for the pumpkins here - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLL3IEVIDKMm58PWYASsGLeU1SHb_JDRy2
