customer review from 11/12/2012 22 March 2016


Firstly, my mistake I planted seeds alongside a large tree that competed with my poor vines, (Choose spot wisely). Next I planted seeds near chook yard and much better, they are scrambling up our fence and have many butternuts ripening. we planted enough to share around, I suggest grow more than needed, they keep for months after picked and your friends will take one if offered. One vine should produce about 4-5 pumpkins.
