Black Kat' pumpkins are so fun to grow. They are "personal sized" pumpkins, and grow as semi-bush plants, ideal for smaller gardens. When ripe, they are a deep, dark green that appears black and weigh 1/2-1 lb. The flesh inside is pale orange and they make a delicious pie, puree, or can be cooked like a winter squash. Imagine the fun you will have creating spooky carvings with a black pumpkin! Pumpkins are a warm season crop. Direct seed after all danger of frost is over. New England seed says do NOT plant this seed until after the middle of June in CT! They take 77 days from seed to harvest.
