|Unique miniature pumpkin with 1 1/2-2 1/2 lb, deep orange fruits. Nice easy to grip handles, great for children.

The vines need plenty of room to sprawl, although some can be supported on a trellis. Summer squash or pumpkins should be sown indoors in flats in short season areas, 3-4 weeks before the night soil temperatures have warmed up. Seedlings should be gradually hardened off. Plants prefer rich, compost enriched soil. They will cross pollinate within their species. After harvest they should be ripened for 30 days in a cool location.
