1306 Mohr Pumpkin Blossom End Split

1306 Mohr Pumpkin Blossom End Split

If you look at the photo closely, the 1306 Mohr went down today.  I noticed yesterday it seemed a little soft, but was not sure why.  After further investigation, I was able to put a needle easily all the way through the crack.  It’s too bad, this one was a steady grower.  Initially, it was my fastest grower for about the first 25 days, then it was slow and steady.

I have no one to blame but myself.  I was not doing the appropriate maintenance on the plant and ended up with several pumpkins and many vines that needed to be trimmed.  I trimmed everything on Thursday night versus taking a few pumpkins off at a time.  It clearly had a growth spurt and split.  Amy really liked the color and shape of this one.

The whitest Pumpkin I have ever grown

This one is really big and continues to put on 12+ pounds a day.  Even with the 1610 Leiber genetics, it is ghost white.
