Growing pumpkins is fun for the whole family. When it’s time to reap the fruit, pay special attention to the condition of the pumpkins to form sure the time is true. Harvesting pumpkins at the proper time increases the storage time. Let’s learn more about storing pumpkins once harvested.
Wash and thoroughly dry the pumpkins, then wipe them down with a weak bleach solution to discourage rot. Make the bleach solution by adding 2 tablespoons of bleach to 1 gallon of water. Now the pumpkins are ready for storage.
Dry, dark locations with temperatures between 50- and 60-degrees F. (10-16 C.) make ideal pumpkin storage areas. Pumpkins kept at higher temperatures become tough and stringy and should sustain chill damage at cooler temperatures. Set the pumpkins during a single layer on bales of hay, cardboard, or wooden shelves. If you’d like, you'll hang them in mesh produce sacks. Storing pumpkins on concrete results in rot. Properly stored pumpkins keep for a minimum of three months and should last as long as seven months. Check the pumpkins for soft spots or other signs of rot from time to time. Throw away rotting pumpkins or cut them up and add them to the compost heap. Wipe down any pumpkins that were touching them with a weak bleach solution.
