Hi Friends - I have a vertically growing pumpkin vine that is about 10 feet long now, strong, and has produced one large pumpkin the size of a big basketball at this point. It is still green and wondering if I should pick it to allow others to grow as I don't have any other immature fruits yet and such a large vine with lots of flowers. What should I do?

Hmmm, I am not sure but thought I would bump this so more experienced pumpkin growers will see it! It makes sense, kinda like cucumbers to pick so they continue producing, but I am a first year pumpkin grower this year so leave it on the vine until someone else has some words of wisdom, good luck!

Leave it alone until it is ripe and full color. If you pick it now it will rot. They keep setting fruit as they keep flowering. Leave it until fall.
