Answer: You could grow almost any pumpkin on a trellis or sturdy framework, but the small or mini pumpkins are easier to work with and will create less weight. The vine can also be pruned if needed to reduce that "windsail" effect. You will need to twine the vine into the trellis or support and then make a sling to support each pumpkin. A soft, stretchy, quick-drying fabric such as nylon pantyhose works well for this.
