Pick pumpkins when the stem attaching them to the vines dries and dies off. The less pumpkins on a vine the larger the fruit will be. Most pumpkins then need to sit for a week or so before eating. Japs can be eaten as soon as picked.

The way I stop critters from eating my pumpkins is to take hot sauce such as Dave's Insanity Sauce, and mix a little with water in a spray bottle and spray the pumpkins down. You don't need a lot of the hot sauce, maybe a tablespoon of sauce to a pint of water. Be careful not breath in any of the vapors or you will be sorry.

Not yet charleliz, let the stem dry a bit, nothing worse than a green tasteless pumpkin.

That's a great crop for just one vine you have, I normally grow 1/2 my yard of vine for a couple of pumpkin

Hi Wayne - this tip from Pete Cundall is to nip out the growing tip when the vines 1.5 - 2 m long - this makes side shoots which carry more female flowers.

I actually tried this last yr and got more blinkin pumpkins that I could have ever imagined (unfortunately they all got sunburnt and the watering required was more than I could afford - so they were yukk)

Gee - I wonder if wasabi would make a good pest repellent spray..!!?

Karen & Paul says...
We have had a bumper pumpkin crop this year on our new house site in Pottsville. It grew like mad out of the side of our compost bin and was a godsend at stabilising a rather steep bank which drops away from our very steep driveway. So far I have picked well over 15 and I reckon I still have another 12 or so on there. I wish I knew about the waiting until they wither thing :-( I got a bit excited and picked em a tad early, but the few we have eaten already have been tasty.
So the tip from my 83 year old Grandmother is to store them on their sides... Don't ask why! "That's just how they always did it on the farm" :-)

I 'sprinkle ' the clippings from the hair cut we give our dogs around our plants. No kidding it really works...also, to keep intruders out, plant marigolds around the perimeter of your garden..we also have wind chimes kites that 'fly ' in the breeze. I've even tried moth balls.

We have a Kent pumpkin vine growing out of our worm farm.
As I have never grown pumpkins before, not sure when to pick them.
Do we wait until stalks wither to harvest, where do we store them & how long do we wait after picking to eat them?

Rain Lover says...
I'm new here. I was searching for Chestnut Trees and their cultivation requirements and ended up here. Looks good.

I want to respond to your question, Susan.

I don't know what's eating your pumpkins but it COULD be the same creatures that ate the two that I had.

I placed them on an old chest freezer in the shade in my back 'garden', thought they were safe from anything, only to find that they had been nibbled. So I decided that I could cope with a nibble being taken by someone or something, only the nibbler didn't stop there. Ate practically the whole 2 pumpkins but in such a way that I didn't really notice until I picked them up to decide which one to take inside. Arrgh!

We do have a resident possum and her yearly baby but I don't think it was her or her offspring. She doesn't really make a nuisance of herself, in my opinion. My husband disagrees as they wee in his shed.

So if I grow or get given another pumpkin, they'll go inside my outside chest freezer with the horse feed.

That's great - I forgot to say what I think ate them. Ratties. We have a few rats as we have a few guineapigs, and I guess they go with the territory. Not the A.C.T I hasten to add, the fact that they have a nice supply of guineapig food and they take advantage and come calling on the guineapigs even when they pretend not to be at home.

Hi,

I too am new here, and a first time pumpkin grower!

I googled my way here after wondering how would I know when they are ready to pick.

The more appropriate question is probably 'IF' they will ever be ready??

I noticed some time ago that the vine had spilled out of the garden area and onto a concrete area. I had made attempts initially to move and re-direct the vine and baby pumpkins. Not long after this, the vine was doing a little too well and taking over my entertainment area, I did give it a little trimming.

The couple of times that I have moved the vine, has been at about the time of unusaully heavy rain for this time of year.

The baby pumpkins have all managed to go black , shrivell up and die without getting any more than about 10cm in length (I think they are butternut Pumpkins)... so I am at the point now where I dont know if its me, or the strange weather we are having?? But my babies just don't want to grow!

Any suggestions?

Thank-you

Hi Kirstie,
I had this problem with Butternut and Jap pumpkins. I thought it was nutritional, and being a farmer, used what I had on hand: that being superphosphate (phosphorus and sulfur) and urea (nitrogen). The Butternuts got both and went beserk - pumpkins everywhere, but the Japs that only got urea did nothing. 3 or 4 weeks later I gave the Japs some superphosphate and they then set plenty of pumpkins.
My conclusion is that it is either the P or S doing the job. What is the opinion of the learned readers

Hi wayne,
Try tip pruning all your vines, give it some dolomite and sulphate of potash around the root zone. That should help it fruit.

I only grow Kent/Jap pumpkins and I don't wait for the vine to die before harvesting. I find that you can harvest anytime that the white markings on the pumpkin have taken on an orange hew. I've heard its OK to eat them immediately but I prefer to harden up the skin by waiting a week or two after picking.

have just harvested my first butternut and think I may have been a little premature. Stalk is still green and skin is a tan colour with a few very fine green stripes. How do you know when to harvest and how soon can you eat them?

Butternuts should be a nice even tan colour with no stripes. best to let the vine die back ( if they do in your area)
before harvesting. Always leave the last bit of stalk including the tendril on & your pumpkins will last longer.
I am afraid your early harvest will taste insipid & rot a lot quicker.
Been there, done that!

Jules says...
I have a Jap pumkin vine that is now 2 years old! first year no pumpkins, this year had 2, 1 average size and 1 nearly a foot and a half across!, we chopped half the vine away as it took over the yard and now has another crop of about 6 or 7 on it again. So I can't wait for the plant stems to wither. I pick when the stripes turn from yellow to peachy orange colour.

I have a Jap pumpkin growing in my back yard and it is loaded from ready to pick (i think) well I picked one and it was beautiful, I waited until the white lines had turned cream in colour, I cant wait for the vine to start dying to harvest because I have them from ready to golf ball size, to be honest I don't think this vine is ever going to die. I am going to cut the leaves covering the big ones away and see if this makes them mature quicker. Ha its all about experimenting for me at the moment, Oh and i also used the tap, tap test for the hollow sound (the same one I use to pick watermelons at the supermarket).

It is not you, it seems to be the year. My melons and pumpkins are also aborting the females. There is not much you can do except keep water up to them and they might come good. I am resigned to the fact that I am not going to get any fruit off a couple of my melon varieties this year and a low yield off the rest.
I am an experienced melon grower and this sometimes happens, especially if you have had unusual weather such as very dry and hot.

I have a three very large Queensland Blue pumpkin plants growing, I have picked at least 12 quite large pumpkins (two were starting to split) when I opened one it was still very green inside, now I am afraid all the others I have picked might be the same, ie not ripe. If I leave them in the sun during the day will this help to ripen them, I have left at least 8 inchs of stalk in each one.

Funny thing Dee, I like my pumpkins on the green side. When fully ripe, they can be a bit 'cluggy' and hard to swallow unless you add a 'ton' of butter.
Try some greenish pumpkin, it's very nice!

Hi Lindy, sounds like your soil is too sour, try adding some Dolomite around the root zone. Ash from a fire and old cow manure helps too.

yay thanks Proco just the info i was looking for. This pumpkin popped out after returning my compost (well NOT my compost lol but you know what I mean) back to the soil and it was in an awkward place the mower man wasnt happy having to move the vine everytime he needed to get to the lawn to mow. But hey I have two beautiful butternuts and the hunter and gatherer in me says it was all very much worth it. :)Kazza

Lindy: pumpkins need full daytime sunshine. Is that fence line creating too much of a shade? We had the same problem with a vine that started growing near a fence. It took off once a vine escaped across the grass into the sunlight but it was too late for it to properly develop.

It may be because the tree is in competition for moisture in the soil. Some extra water may help to increase the crop.

Hi Amanda, with Qld blue, you can leave them on until the vine dies, but I don't.
I'd pick the one in Pic 2 now and leave the one in Pic 1 a few weeks more.

Hi Vivienne - I think this has been discussed before. A growth spurt, maybe, after some sudden rain or heavy watering? Even watering would prevent that from happening, mulching heavily also helps soak up excess water and even up distribution. I don't think there's any problem with the plant itself.

The long jap as some call it is not as rich as the standard and closer to a bugle really.Scratch the skin and look for deep yellow or just leave it until 3 weeks after growth has stopped or a bloom is on the skin.
