Benefits of Musk Pumpkin
One of the many benefits of growing your own pumpkins is that you can eat every part of the plant instead of buying canned pumpkins from the store. It is possible to eat the flowers, leaves, stems, seeds, and flesh of pumpkins (including the skin). Beta carotene and vitamin C are found in it. As well, pumpkins contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which may help prevent cataracts and reduce the risk of macular degeneration.
How to sow and care for Musk Pumpkin Seeds
You need to create hills before you can plant your seeds. The best place to plant Musk Pumpkin is in elevated piles of soil. By doing so, you can maintain good drainage and help keep the soil and seeds warm. High-lying soil warms up faster than low-lying soil. Seeds will sprout when the soil temperature is 18 degrees celsius, but 23 degrees Celsius is optimal. Avoid planting seeds too early, especially if it is a wetter spring than normal, as seeds will rot in cold soil. Each hill should have 12 inches of soil and should be spaced 6 feet apart. Five to six seeds per hill should be buried one inch deep, pointing downward; delicate plants will grow to three or four when they germinate.
The seedlings should be thinned by cutting them with scissors. By pulling the remaining seedlings from the ground, the roots will be disturbed. When roots are disturbed, they become sensitive. Once you have transplanted your seedlings that you started indoors or your direct-sown seeds have germinated, you need to water them at least an inch each week. Water them close to the roots. Watering wands with long handles are ideal. To prevent pumpkins from competing for water and nutrients, keep your garden weeded. Mulching the soil with two to three inches of mulch keeps it moist and prevents weed seeds from germinating. Mulch should never touch vines when used around pumpkins.
