Description

Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
The seed of the Long Pie Pumpkin first arrived in America in 1832 on a whaling ship that landed on the Massachusetts coast; hence the other common name, Nantucket Pumpkin.  This variety produces an oblong or bell-shaped, medium-sized fruit, and is universally acclaimed for being the finest pumpkin for pies.

Direct sow seeds in hills or rows after the last spring frost; for hills, sow 6-8 seeds per 18"-wide hill, then thin to the best 3 plants per hill.  Pumpkins prefer moist but well-drained, fertile soil.  Harvest as the skins begins to turn orange.  This pumpkin stores well and ripens after storage.  Approximately 8 seeds per packet.
