Pumpkins are native to the US, and were used by American Indians for meals, by roasting the entire pumpkin over coals, while the skins were used to weave into mats. The white settlers quickly discovered the value of pumpkins and made them a staple in their diets.

Technically a fruit, pumpkins can be baked, broiled, steamed, or blended into scrumptious desserts, pancakes, bread, coffee, creamer, and even ‘Octoberfest’ pumpkin beer! Roasting the seeds will provide a nutritious and savory snack for you and for the birds in your backyard, while the flesh can be used to aid digestion in people and pets.

Part of the Curcurbiat family of squash, pumpkins are also colorful and robust in flavor. Those grown for display can reach several hundred pounds, while those grown to consume are generally smaller. Pumpkins are mostly composed of water, and are high in fiber, low in fat, and packed with vitamins A, B-6, C, E, riboflavin, potassium, copper, manganese, thiamin, niacin, folate, iron, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus.

Before ordering pumpkin seeds, please note that pumpkin seeds will need a lot of space, and have a long growing season of about three months. Pumpkin seeds grow best when placed directly into well drained soil, in either light shade to full sun. The optimum season for planting is in late May in the north, and in early July in the more southern states. Also, pumpkin shoots are sensitive to frost, so plant pumpkin seeds after all chance of frost is past, otherwise the shoots may rot.

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
