Growing Pumpkins

Pumpkin Turning Orange
Do pumpkins still grow as they are turning orange? Thanks

Growing Pumpkins


Hey there! I think they've pretty much reached their full size at that point, but will fill out a bit. Mine haven't gotten quite that big yet, so I can't give you first hand experience. But last year, I think that after they had gotten big and started turning orange, they were still pretty smooth, without those characteristic pumpkin ridges. So as they turn orange, they'll fill out. Hope that helps! (07/31/2007)

In my experience they do not grow after they are orange. In fact, here in northern Saskatchewan, we have a short growing season, so we often have to pick pumpkins that are green, and then they ripen at room temperature. (07/31/2007)
