Howden is one of the most traditional old-time favorites. Intense, bright orange pumpkins with defined ribs and string “handles” grow from 10-ft. (3-m) vines.
Full sun. Moderate feeders; prefer a rich loamy soil of good fertility and moisture retention. Mix plenty of organic matter into soil. Even and sufficient soil moisture is essential. Pumpkins benefit from mild feedings with a fertilizer high in phosphorous to initiate fruit formation
