: I live in a climate where the humidity rarely exceeds 30%, 98 to 110 temperatures from mid July to date, and a long growing season. My question is - My vine is deteriorating from the stem to the outer regions and the pumpkin is no where near maturity. What would cause this? Last year I grew my first pumpkin. It reached 250lbs and the same thing happened. Could it be seed? Is there seed for my climate???

Am afraid that I have to agree w/Tim. We're in Western KY and have had a terrible year for heat/humidity and these AG's evidently simply cannot tolerate the heat. Have lost one vine/3 pumpkins and am still hanging on to 2 on the remaining vine. The AG seeds come out of Canada and apparently love northern climates. All was well until the heat wave hit and they totally wimped out. Good luck.
