Cinderella pumpkin: these classic French pumpkins are a tribute to Autumn. They makes wicked jack-o-lanterns or, left whole and properly cured, they store well and can be turned into many delicious reminders of summer.
Choose a sunny location and prepare your soil: dig in compost, well-rotted manure and a granular, low-nitrogen fertilizer to form low, 18-inch-wide mounds spaced 4 to 5 feet apart. After your average last frost date, when soil temperature is above 70°F, sow 4 seeds in each mound, 1 inch deep and 6 inches apart. Firm soil and keep damp. Over-watering can cause seeds to rot.
Seedlings emerge within 15 days. After vines have 3 leaves, thin to 2 plants per mound. Mulch and water deeply twice a week, early in the day. Daily watering is not recommended. Increase water volume as the season advances. Occasional feedings with low-nitrogen fertilizer may increase yields.
Cinderella pumpkins can reach 30 pounds and 18+ inches across. Harvest 2 to 4 weeks before your first frost. Cut the stem 4 inches from the fruit, and cure in the sun for 10 days. Store in a cool, dark basement or root cellar and use within
6 months for decor and then dessert.
