Very drought tolerant and pest resistant. Allow lots of room!
Great for pie
These happy plants will take over your whole yard if you aren't careful. I was able to supply the entire neighborhood with as many pumpkins as they could handle. I have made many pumpkin pies since September with these and have two left for Christmas.
