Pumpkins were grown in Jefferson's fields both for the Monticello table as well as for feeding the workhorses, cattle, sheep, and pigs in late summer. Jefferson enjoyed a "potato-pumpkin," which he described as a substitute for sweet potatoes. In Notes on the State of Virginia, he recorded their use by the Native Americans. 'Connecticut Field' is a large, yellow nineteenth century variety with a soft skin.

Plant three to four seeds two inches deep in rich, well prepared hills after last frost. Full sun.

Approximately 15 seeds per pack.
