Wee-B-Little Pumpkin is grown as a fruit vegetable. These miniature oblate-shaped globes have a diameter of about 3½ inches and weigh between 8 and 16 ounces. The smooth deep orange rind is perfect for painting, and the sweet deep-yellow flesh is good for pumpkin pies, stews, and soups, or for canning. And roasted pumpkin seeds make a nutritious and delicious snack. These pumpkins are also good for carving and make excellent jack-o'-lanterns.

Wee-B-Little Pumpkin, an herbaceous annual winter squash, is a member of the cucurbit (Cucurbitaceae) family. It has a semi-bush habit and forms a compact vine that needs about 8 feet of garden space.

Pumpkin is easy to grow from seed, growing to its fullest potential in full sun and fertile, organically rich, moist, well-draining loams. Succession plantings every 2 to 3 weeks is recommended for continual harvest. Harvest pumpkin fruits when the rind is hard and orange in color.

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.
