Racer pumpkin seeds produce medium sized pumpkins with a great looking rib and big dark green handle. Vigorous and highly productive semi bush vines producing 2-3 fruits per plant. Each pumpkin reaches 5-6kg in weight. These are great at halloween for carving! If kept in a frost free environment then these can be stored for weeks after harvesting.


When to Sow Racer F1 Pumpkin Seeds

April to May under glass, Mid May to June outdoors

Plant Out

May to June


September to October

Where to Sow

Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2.5cm (1") apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost.
Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24") apart.

What to do next

Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June 60-90cm (24-36") apart once all risk of frost has past. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.

Handy Tip

Always grow pumpkins in a sunny spot in rich fertile soil. Water regularly once fruits start to swell.
