“Follow Our Traditional Cultivation & Have Healthy Lifestyle”
Pumpkins come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, as well as a variety of flavors. Vitamin A, potassium, and fiber are all abundant in them. They do not require a trellis or poles for support, unlike vining gourds and cucumbers. The plants are permitted to sprawl on the ground because the fruits are enormous and heavy.
How to Grow Pumpkins:
They flourish in loose, well-drained soil and direct sunlight, as do most plants, allowing the fruit to ripen evenly. A few pumpkin vines can be found growing alongside companion crops in most kitchen gardens, or even on a compost heap. Pumpkins may be produced all year, even though they are considered monsoon crops.
Pumpkins can be grown from January to March and from September to December. For the rainfed crop, sowing can begin after the first showers in May or June.
Pumpkin plants will be fed with aged Compost. Early in the season, you can also use a slow-release organic fertilizer like 5-10-10 around your plants. During the growth season, side-dress plants with aged compost to boost nutrients and assist the soil to retain moisture. During the growing season, irrigate plants with compost every third week to give them a boost.
The principal pests in pumpkin plantations include the Epilachna beetle, fruit flies, and red pumpkin beetle. The most common diseases in pumpkins are powdery mildew, downy mildew, and mosaic.
Irrigate every 3 to 4 days throughout the early stages of pumpkin plant development. During flowering and fruiting, irrigate on alternate days to ensure high-quality fruits.
