All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2016

Super Moon Pumpkin, an F1 hybrid, is grown as a fruit vegetable for ornamental and culinary purposes. These large slightly elongated globes grow to approximately 15 to 18 inches in diameter and typically weigh 25 to 30 pounds, but can reach up to 50 pounds. Ghostly white and blemish free, Super Moon makes a beautiful decoration for autumn, and the yellow flesh is good for stews and soups or for canning. And roasted pumpkin seeds make a nutritious and delicious snack. These pumpkins have tough stems and make excellent jack-o'-lanterns.

An herbaceous annual winter squash, Super Moon is a member of the cucurbit (Cucurbitaceae) family. The plant grows vigorously, forming a spreading, trailing indeterminate vine that will spread about 4 to 5 feet and set 2 to 4 fruits per plant. Succession plantings every 2 to 3 weeks is recommended for continual harvests. Pick pumpkins when the rind is hard.

Hardy and easy to grow from seed, pumpkin grows to its fullest potential in full sun and fertile, organically rich, moist, well-draining loams. Super Moon F1 Pumpkin is disease resistant, especially to southern root rot and powdery mildew.

A warm-season vegetable, sensitive to cold temperatures and frost, it can be direct sown into warm spring soil after all danger of frost has passed and soil temperature is 58° to 60°F, but plants can also be started indoors and transplanted. Flowers begin to set fruit with night temperatures between 55° and 75°F. Protect plants if temperatures are expected to dip below 50°F. Mulching helps to control weeds, moderate soil temperature, and to maintain soil moisture. Pumpkins are damaged by heavy frost. Row covers offer added protection from heavy frost.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
