Pumpkin is a full sun winter squash that thrives in the heat, trailing and vining just like a gourd or cucumber. Pumpkins are able to be sown directly after final spring frost but, for earliest starts, begin indoors 3-4 weeks prior. Plant 2-3 seeds 1 inch deep per cell or, for direct sowing, plant atop 8-10 inch tall mounds every 5-6 ft to accommodate long, heavy trailing vines.
Germinates in 4-10 days and transplant to composted, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Fertilize plants every 3 weeks and harvest pumpkins before the autumn frost. As pumpkins begin to show on the vine, pinch off vines and flowers to inhibit vegetative growth, directing energy to producing largest, healthiest pumpkins.

Make sure your pumpkins have good circulation and don't succumb to rot. Sugar Pie Pumpkin will grow to be a little over 6" and be bright orange.
Harvesting Sugar Pie Pumpkin
Most small to medium pumpkins are ready to harvest 90-100 days from sowing while larger varieties require an extra few weeks. Regardless of color or size, pumpkins are generally ripe once the stem is solid and rind is tough, unable to be pierced by a fingernail. Clip pumpkins from the vine with shears leaving about 4" of stem intact and, once harvested, leave out to naturally cure in the sun for 10-14 days. The curing process will help pumpkins last up to 3 months longer after harvesting.
