The Q&A Archives: Pumpkins

Question: I planted my pumpkin plant back in June. I bought it from Home Depot and put it in my garden. It gets plenty of sun and it is quite large. I have a couple of small pumpkins growing. They are green. At what point will they turn orange?

Answer: Some pumpkins can take 100 days to mature! Yours will be ready to harvest when the skin turns from green to orange. Sometimes that won't be until your first frost. Hope they have time to mature before the weather gets too cold!
