Gardeners' Notes:

Positive BlackEarthSquid On Sep 23, 2013, BlackEarthSquid from Black Earth, WI wrote:

Very nice yield - one plant yielded 11 pumpkins. They are closer to the 8 lbs mark. The plant is truly compact, taking up about 1/2 the crawling space of my other winter squashes.

Very robust cultivar. Recommended.

Neutral Farmerdill On Jan 25, 2005, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Extremely early bush pumpkin especially useful for small gardens where space is at a premium or in large pots. Compact bush habit, high yields of 5-8 pound pumpkins. Fair table quality. Developed from a cross of Cocozelle and New England Pie by the USDA Field Station in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1943. 80-90 days.
