Growing Practices: No Pesticides No Herbicides No Fungicides No Synthetic Fertilizers
Latin Name: Cucurbita moschata
Days to Maturity: 110
Small tan pumpkins on Downy Mildew resistant vines. Sweet flavor and deep orange interior, though with a rather large seed cavity. The exterior ripens to a deep tan color, but they can be harvested while still partially green. Good keepers. Average 2.5 pounds. 280 seeds/ounce. Grown by Living Energy Farm.
We had a partial crop failure in 2019 due to deer pressure, so only the packet size is available this year. If you are looking for larger quantity, consider substituting South Anna Butternut, a variety we developed from a cross between Seminole Pumpkin and Waltham Butternut. South Anna has just as good Downy Mildew resistance as Seminole, and it is more productive and has a much smaller seed cavity.

Ask a Question About Seminole Pumpkin - Certified Organic
Answer this question
I grew Seminole pumpkin first time in 2018 with seeds bought from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. The plants were healthy and had very good resistance to vine borers and one vine even survived the first frost. Everything about Seminole was as described except for their keeping quality. Instead of keeping at room temp for up to a year, Seminole was the first to rot (3 weeks after harvest) among the winter squash I grew (Waltham Butternut, Zucchino Rampicante Squash, and Tetsukabuto Hybrid Winter Squash). I didn't get a chance to taste Seminole. 2018 is indeed one of the wettest years. My Seminole plants were the healthiest among all. I was wondering what went wrong. Thank you.
I don't know what could be causing this, besides the really wet conditions potentially affecting the fruits. Did you see any spots of rot on the fruits at harvest time? Or else maybe frost damage, but I assume that would have impacted the other fruit types as well.
Answer this question
How did the pumpkin perform re bacterial wilt resistance?
Yes thanks for the question. In 2016 our Seminole breeding trial (and production crop) had a good bit of bacterial wilt, while no other C. moschata squashes had it. Our best selections from the breeding trial had no wilt, but the benefit of that selection won't pay off till next year's seed crop. The seed we have for sale here is from plants with less BW than the average, but not necessarily enough to make a significant difference.
