If the area is cold for a long time and gets very little sun, it is better to grow the seeds indoors and transplant the seedlings into the field. The first step is to add compost and peat moss to the seed containers. When the seedlings germinate, they should be transplanted outside when the weather is warm.

Mandatory watering every two days. Watering is required at a rate of 2.5 cm to 5.1 cm per week. Care should be taken not to overdo the water. When the fruits start to ripen, the amount of watering should be reduced. When the water is low, the fruits become sweet and fragrant.The fruits ripen before the onset of monsoon or at the end of summer.When plucked from the vines, the fruit becomes soft. But it will not be sweet again.If not eaten immediately after harvest, it can be stored in the fridge for twelve or fifteen days.

It is used to make smoothies, ice cream and desserts. Unripe fruits are used for pickling. This pumpkin can be used with cucumber, mint, ginger, berries, prawns, coconut milk and chilli powder without any side effects.
