Jack Be Little Pumpkin
Jack Be Little Pumpkin- These are miniature pumpkins that are really easy to grow. Great for fall decorations. This is my first attempt with pumpkins, and I'm hooked! Although this vine was attacked by a vine borer early on, it has continued to thrive and is now producing its second pumpkin. It has been really easy to guide onto the trellis it is growing on. Plus the fruit is so small (2" x 3" and 1/4 pound) that the fruit needs no additional support. I even found a recipe for a dessert made specifically from their pulp and served in the remaining shell. 95 days to maturity.
