This shows the same pumpkin as the before posting to show what the actual pumpkin looks like 48-hours after pollination. The reason this is important is this is when my “Anthesis” is applied to help encourage the duration and rate of cell expansion. The data generated indicates this is a critical time and it will slow the overall pumpkin growth up to about day 35, but after this the rate should be greater than an untreated fruit. Only the pumpkin is sprayed with a fine mist as this is all that it takes to alter the cell response for the duration of the growing cycle.
