Pumpkin - Racer F1
This variety produces early setting fruits on a semi bush plant and performs well in our summers. It grows rich, orange skinned fruit of a perfect Halloween size of 7-9kg. The flesh is superb for pumpkin pies as well as for Halloween carving.
Start off in 7.5cm pots indoors. Fill pots with good free-draining damp seed compost. Sow seed 2cm deep and cover with a layer of compost or vermiculite. Acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few hours a day for up to 14 days.
