Help, Our Pumpkin is still green athough the other one from the same seed packet is yellow. Is there any reason for this? and will it go yellow or stay green?
Any help much apprectiated



Hard to say, Supergran! Surprisingly minute differences in sun exposure, soil, watering, etc. can make a big difference in ripening times. Add to that the tiny differences in genetics from seed to seed in a variety, and the differences in when they were pollinated, and there is no telling when the green one will start to ripen. If it is a mutant, it may even stay green, though that is very rare. There's still weeks of time.
