I recently got my pumpkin back from display and harvested 9 seeds. Needless to say they are all spoken for. I have requests that I will not be able to fulfill. I certainly would have if I could. Good Luck & Grow Big. John Barlow

Sorry John. This year very much pumpkins with low Seeds count. I thought the low count was between 100-250 seeds, but 9 seeds, or 20 from 2593, or 38 from dave steils pumpkin ... It's a great shame. I have seen pumpkins with 800 seeds, my father got it in 2016, I do not know what is the real reason that less and less are coming out, but it seems that the 2145 genetics is giving few seeds lately.

The Same thing happened to the Patons in some of their big ones from 2020 too. I wonder if the heat had something to do with it. I'll post a picture from the National Weather Service. I many places in the US it was the Hottest summer on record.
