Common color & season
DescriptionIt is an important cucurbitaceous vegetable grown for its immature and mature fruits. They are used as fresh vegetable, processed food and stock feed. Immature and mature fruits are cooked as a vegetable.Pumpkin is sensitive to acidic soils. A deep well drained loamy soil is preferred. Sandy loams are good for raising early crop whereas clay loams are good for high yield. Both should be with ample organic matter content. The long tap root system is adapted to its growth in river beds. The best ph should be 6.0-7.0.Soil temperature should not go below 10°C and maximum beyond 30°C, the optimum range is around 20°-25°C. Soil-moisture should be at least 10-15% above the permanent wilting point.The plants can be grown successfully between temperature ranges of 25°-30°C. Above 40°C and below 15°C the growth of the plant will be very slow and the yield goes down. It does not tolerate frost.Pumpkin requires a long and warm growing season. It can be grown in relatively cooler climates than the other cucurbits. Short-days, low-night temperature and high-relative humidity is best for pumpkin production.For trailing pumpkin, dried twigs are spread on the ground. During the time of manuring, raking of soil should be done. Then the plants are irrigated immediately.
