Hi Wisteria,

Good work and I am glad to see you have succeeded growing this particular pumpkin hybrid. It is a reliable high yielding pumpkin.

Can see you have become our forum's resident pumpkin expert/Queen! :notworthy:/>

Wilson, I'm not a pumpkin expert. This phoenix pumpkin is the only fruit at the moment. When the first female flower opened, there wasn't any male flower around, hence one potential fruit was lost. These vines are producing flowers at the ratio of 10 male flowers to 1 female flower. The rare female flower buds turn yellow when the buds are 1cm long. Not too encouraging!

This pumpkin was harvested yesterday (6 weeks after pollination).

I have 3 vines grown from seeds which Wilson has labelled "Phoenix Pumpkin". The pumpkin turns out to be round instead of papaya-shaped as indicated in the seed catalogue.

Can pumkin fruit when grown in a pot? What size does the pot need to be? Does the vine need to lie on soil surface? I have two 12 inch tall Malyasian pumkin plants growing in separate 6 inch tall long container pots. They have grown tendrils. I am trying to figure out how to position them in a small garden without trellis as I understand that the vines can grow very long. Let it run along the perimeter of the house? I understand that it will be good to pluck off the first flower that appears to allow the vine to grow. Would cutting the vine at certain stage support better fruit growth? Thanks for sharing.
