Fruit & Vegetables



These small, deep orange pumpkins are fun and easy to grow, lasting up to a year if fully cured on the vine.

Kids love these little pumpkins – especially to paint and decorate. Jack-Be-Little’s vines grow up to 10 ft. (3 m) long, producing as many as ten pumpkins each. Gardeners have actually grown these pumpkins in large patio containers using strong trellises, training the vine upwards.

Spacing: 60in (150cm)

Days to harvest: 95

Growth: Indeterminate

• Choose a sunny location (6+ hours of sun) and dig a hole about two times as wide as your pot.

• Remove your plant from the pot by loosening the soil and tipping it out into your hand. Place your plant in the soil about as deep as it was in the pot.

• Refill the space around your plant with soil and press lightly to compact the dirt, keeping your plant firmly in the ground.

• Water immediately to settle the soil, and add more soil as needed, bringing it level to the rest of your garden.

Water as needed all season to keep soil evenly moist, keeping your eye out for the first sign of wilt. Wilting is a sure sign that your pumpkins need water. Feed with a vegetable fertilizer to ensure your bountiful harvest.
