Pumpkin Tom Fox

Description

Tom Fox seeds produce Jack O'Lantern type pumpkins with a well ribbed, deep orange colour. Ideal for Halloween with great handles. They grow on long trailing vines in a variety of shapes and are very thick walled. They are heavy for their size and grow to approximately 5-10kg (12-24 lbs) each, despite them only growing to 7.5cm (3") diameter. The flesh can be scooped out and cooked in a soup, and then served inside the pumpkin for decorative bowls. Prefers full sun (6+ hours a day).

When to Sow Tom Fox Seeds

April to May under glass Mid May to June outdoors

Where to Sow

Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2.5cm (1") apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost. Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24") apart.

What to do next

Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June 60-90cm (24-36") apart once all risk of frost has past. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.

Maturity

September to October

Handy Tip

Always grow pumpkins in a sunny spot in rich fertile soil. Water regularly once fruits start to swell.
