    Sweet Yellow Pumpkin


    • This classic Cypriot pumpkin is super sweet and is one of the most flavoursome pumpkins around.
    • An awesome variety to cook with, it has a soft and smooth texture! It is also super fruity when eaten raw in salads and sweets.
    • Easy to grow in a patch where it will run rampant with high yield of flowers and fruits.  
    • Compost and mulch well around plant and vines if grown on ground to keep the fruit from rotting in damp soil.
    • Best to grow in a sunny position with well drained nutrient dense soil. Like most pumpkins they will climb so try and be creative and grow on a trellis!    
    • If growing on the ground allow room to spread about 5X5 metres.
    • Harvest the pumpkins end of Summer when vines and stalk of fruit turn yellow and dry.
    • If growing on a trellis train 1 main shoot until it reaches the top and allow to spread at final grow destination.
