'Small Sugar' pumpkin produces smooth textured, smallish pumpkins with bright orange flesh. Those in the know say it makes the finest pumpkin pie! Each compact vine normally produces 4-6 fruit. Hand pollination is recommended. Plant in well-drained, moderately fertile soil, compost should be added prior to planting.
