Grown in a container and trellised. This mini pumpkin can be a conversation piece in the home garden.
A fruiting mini pumpkin grown in a bucket attracted attendees at the Agrilink trade show last October 4-6, 2018 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. This was showcased at the booth of East-West Seed Company.
This can be a conversation piece when grown in the home garden. Of course, it can be a source of vegetable for cooking in the home.The shoots can also be harvested and cooked as vegetable in the Ilocano “dinengdeng” or “inabraw.” But not for pinakbet. In the authentic Ilocano pinakbet, pumpkin is never used as ingredient.
