Jack O'Lantern is THE perfect Halloween pumpkin. Smooth, bright orange skin is firm and excellent for carving. With pumpkins averaging 4.5 kg (10 lbs), this versatile variety is also fine grained and excellent for pies.
Pumpkin Jack O' Lantern
Jack-o’-lantern pumpkins can be slow growing, so it is important to keep them safe in the process. Using proper fencing or netting around the plants can help keep critters from dining on them, while plenty of mulch and regular feedings of fertilizer can help keep them growing in size. In the meantime, they will enjoy regular watering (at least 2 inches of water per week) lots of full sun, and weeding around the base and tendrils.
