Tropical Pumpkins, Part 2

From Part 1: Heat & Humidity Tolerant Tropical Pumpkins "Pumpkins are one of the oldest cultivated vegetable crops found in Florida. Pumpkin, pepper, and papaya seeds were found on a native Calusa site located on Pine Island, Florida and were radiocarbon dated at over 2,000 years old. The variety known as "Seminole" pumpkin is believed to be a descendant of these first Calusa fruits. Seminole pumpkins are one of few varieties that thrive in our wet, hot summers here in Florida, and produce loads of sweet, nutrient dense, storable fruits that will keep for over a year." We had pretty good success growing a variety of Seminole pumpkin through the hottest, most humid months here at Sandhill Far
