(Cucurbita maxima) 95-100 days. This pumpkin is considered one of the most bizarre and unique pumpkins. The Italians call this pumpkin “Sea Monster”. The fruits are round, flat, with a wrinkled rind, gray to blue-green and green in color, with thick, tender, sweet-tasting yellow-orange flesh.
It is grown both in seedlings and by direct sowing of seeds in the ground (when the threat of frost has passed). The seeding depth is not more than 4 cm. With the seedling method, sowing is carried out in separate pots (8-10 cm in diameter), since it is better to plant plants in the ground with a clod of earth (seedlings should have 2-4 true leaves). Further care consists in loosening the soil, regular watering (in the initial period of cultivation) and fertilizing with complex fertilizers. Pumpkin prefers loose nutrient soils and does not tolerate shading.
Number of seeds in one package: 1,5g.
