Little Diggers Pumpkin 'Jack Be Little'

First introduced to gardeners in the late 80s and early 90s, these mini pumpkins were considered an ornamental or crafting variety - that is, until someone ate one. The perfect snack size and highly productive, they also grow well in pots or when trained vertically up a trellis.

How to grow

Pumpkins are the easiest of the curcubits to grow, they are big feeders, so dig in plenty of well rotted manure where they are to grow. They germinate easily in warm soil, gardeners in cooler areas can start their seedlings in pots in a warm spot and plant out after risk of frost has passed. Pumpkins need plenty of water as they grow, mulch well to conserve moisture and eliminate weeds. Harvest pumpkins when the stalk attaching it to the vine turns woody and corky. Cut (not tear) the stalk from the plant. Never lift the pumpkin by this 'handle' as if it breaks off the pumpkin will go mouldy within days.
