White Flat Boer Ford Pumpkin is a hybrid white pumpkin with powdery mildew resistance and vigorous vines. These flat, stackable pumpkins have a bright white coloration that is great for fall decoration and pumpkin sales. It is also a great pie pumpkin as the inside is full of sweet pumpkin flesh.

White Flat Boer Ford Pumpkin produces fruits that average 3-5″ tall and 8-12″ wide. The wider diameter makes it a great option for stacking in displays. The pumpkins average 10-15 lbs each and store extremely well after harvesting. The plants product long, trailing vines that should be given plenty of space.

Pumpkins may be direct-seeded or transplanted, although we highly recommend direct seeding. To ensure a good stand, we recommend planting seeds every 12″ along the intended row. Once plants emerge, thin plants to one every 2 feet. Pumpkins can be susceptible to plant diseases like downy mildew and powdery mildew if leaves receive excess moisture. As a result, we recommend using drip irrigation on winter squash to reduce plant moisture and feed plants more effectively. During periods of heavy rainfall, using a fungicide like Liquid Copper can help to alleviate disease pressure as well.

Pumpkins are a crop that will produce a one-time harvest at the end of the growing season.  They should be harvested when plants die back and the fruits obtain their full color. Stem hardness is also an indication of fruit maturity. Once stems harden, fruits are ready for harvest using a set of pruning shears. Pumpkins can be stored in a cool, dry place for several months, depending on variety and sugar content. Once fruits are harvested, remove the plants from the garden to prevent any fungal spores from overwintering and becoming a problem in future years. Proper crop rotation is extremely important with all pumpkin varieties to reduce disease and pest pressure.
