Growing any type of Pumpkin in the American Southeast is difficult. To do so in Florida with your horrid soil and brutal summers of daily 97 degree temps and afternoon monsoons is impossible...I moved from Michigan to Florida in 1971, and by 1974 I gave up on my beloved hobby of pumpkins. In 1986 my wife and I moved to Myrtle Beach, SC and I've had only a little success. I guess we in the south, who are former Yankees, just have to enjoy the beaches, tropical birds and plants and the beautiful winters.
