120 days. Cucurbita maxima. (F1) Plant produces good yields of 10 to 20 pound pink pumpkins. Pumpkins start out pale yellow, then cream, then pink when fully mature. Multiple harvest are required because pumpkins develop and mature at different times as vines grow. For best pink color, harvest when cork has developed on stem. Excellent choice for home gardens and Farmer’s Markets.

Disclaimer Note: Some environmental conditions and stress can cause plant to produce non-pink pumpkins! Such conditions that may cause non-pink pumpkins are excessive high heat, abnormal PH in soil, and too much fertilizing. Depending on conditions, the true pink color pumpkins can range from 40% to 90% of harvest. Non-pink pumpkins can exhibit blotchy coloration, ranging from blue-grey to green, to salmon orange color.
