Pumpkin, Early Jap 'Ken's Special Hybrid 684 F1' (Cucurbita maxima)

Earliest Jap Pumpkin

This Jap pumpkin can be grown in cooler areas of Australia as it is so early. Jap pumpkins are considered by many to be the
best flavoured pumpkins. This variety has a vigorous vine and needs plenty of space so it isn’t suited to small gardens.

Where to sow: Direct sow
Depth to sow: 2cm
Aspect:  Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.
Soil:  Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add   lime if soil is too acid.

Directions:  Plant 2 seeds per station after the danger of frost is over. October in warm districts, mid-November in cold ones. Thin to one seedling after germination.
