ABSTRACT
The article reports on growing pumpkins in south Georgia. Most of the pumpkins traditionally grown commercially in Georgia are Cucurbita pepo types. They're in the same species as summer squash. And they're highly susceptible to viruses and other foliar diseases. UGA horticulturists have been developing a new pumpkin from plants in another species, Cucurbita moschata. It's the same species as butternut squash. The new pumpkin got its start from seeds that UGA horticulturists Gerard Krewer and Marco Fonseca and Union County Extension agent Tim Jennings collected in the wilds of Brazil.
