Growing Instructions

Soak 2/3 cup of seeds in cool water for 1 hour.

Drain off soak water. Do not ever soak again.

Rinse thoroughly.

Drain thoroughly.

Keep your Sprouter in a relatively low light location.

Rinse and Drain with cool water again in 8-12 hours. You may Rinse and Drain again 8-12 hours beyond that if you want.

These seeds produce Soaks. They are not intended to grow Roots.

Harvest and eat or Refrigerate your crop.

Pumpkins are best stored in a cool location - we keep ours in a freezer, but a refrigerator works well too. If you plan on storing these for more than 3 months you should use one of these cool locations. Pumpkins can turn rancid if they get too warm for too long - like any high oil-content seed will. Also, Pumpkins are pleasing to a particular pest - the Indian Meal Moth, which can appear out of nowhere when conditions are right (hot). These are organic seeds after all, so there is no other way to keep your seeds absolutely safe, except to freeze them. Consider yourself a more educated sprout personage =:-}

Dry Pumpkin seeds await their Soak.

1-4 hours later... Soaked, Rinsed and Drained.

8 - 12 hours later... another Rinse/Drain cycle.

8 - 12 hours later... another Rinse/Drain cycle.

Harvest Time!

This is the most you should expect from a Pumpkin seed, and even this much is not necessary. Remember - they are alive as soon as they have soaked up their fill of water.
