ALSO KNOWN AS JAP IMPROVED JAP (Improved) This improved variety of the common Jap variety grows best in both the warmer climates and tropical areas. It has a firm fleshed bright yellow centre and a dark green/grey outer with yellow mottles across the skin. This pumpkin is round with slightly flattened top and very slightly indented. Pumpkins have large running vines that bear fruit after the peak of summer. If you can grown them in an odd corner where they can scramble over an old fence or garden dwelling it is ideal. They love rich moist, but free draining soil. Plant the seeds 5cm deep and space them 60-100cm apart in rows 3-5m apart. Sow the seeds from Oct-Dec in Cool areas and from Sep-Dec in Temperate areas. In Subtropical areas from Aug-Feb and in Tropical areas all year round. Generally all pumpkins are harvested before the frost hits them, when the vine dies back a little and the fruit stalk is dry and brittle, this means that the fruit is then fully mature and has the best flavour possible. Mature fruit stores very well, though is best kept off of concrete floorings. A good way to store pumpkins is in an airy cupboard or cardboard carton.
