These rounded pumpkins are known for their firm flesh, great flavour and they are a true heirloom variety. Since they can be stored for up to three months, your plants will produce a good store of nutritious, home-grown food. Jap pumpkins are also known as Kent pumpkins and each of the prettily speckled fruits weighs in the region of 5kg. They do take a little longer to ripen than some varieties, but they are well worth waiting for!


To improve germination this seed has been treated with an anti fungal agent (Thiram) Seeds for sowing only, do not eat directly or feed to animals.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Feel free to adjust your sowing date for an early crop provided you have a warm spot to germinate your pumpkin seeds in pots. Sow one seed per pot and keep well-watered. Once up, they will grow quickly, so be ready for planting!

    How to Harvest

    Cut your pumpkins when they give off a hollow sound when you rap on the skin. Give them as much stem as you can. If the skin is undamaged they will keep very well, particularly if left to cure in a sunny spot for about a week.
