Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Small Sugar Pumpkin Seeds
Small Sugar Pumpkin Seeds (95 days)
Sometimes called New England Pie Pumpkin, Sugar Pie Pumpkin, and Small Sugar Pie Pumpkin
The long time favorite and standard for pies. None grows any sweeter. Fruits small, 6-8 lbs; round, flattened at the ends and a good keeper. Skin is deep orange, smooth but plainly ribbed. Flesh is thick, deep yellow, fine grained and has a deliciously sugar flavor.
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.
