Hey Joel, By what I can see in the photo I was told many years ago that it is excessive colour pigmentation that is in the plant and not being used yet in the pumpkin. The other possibility is a deficiency of some sort. Either way I have never had a problem with a plant or a fruit's growth when they are showing a symptom like that. May not hurt to give it some micro nutrients from time to time just in case.

Thanks chris...hope your right🤔,... it does make sense though genetically...my most 'stricken' plant comes from a very orange fruit. Will spray as well...i was thinking micro too, with all this rain somthings gota get diluted, but not sure what would display itself in this way😓. Thanks again.

I would have thought excessive rain and cool temperatures. Saying that, I've never seen that affliction this late in the season.

    It is seed drying time of year. Keep your GVGO seed packs in mind. I am looking after sorting and sending out the packs this year. Lets all work together to make them great. Send in all kinds of seeds. Everyone is looking for different things in a seed pack. You must be a paid up member for 2020 to receive your seed pack. Here is where to mail them to: Jeff Warner 487413 Aidie Creek Garden Road Englehart, Ontario P0J 1H0 Send me an email or msg so i know something is coming and will let you know that i have received it. aidiejeff @ ntl.sympatico.ca

    John won the 150 square foot contest this year with a 1175.6 lb. pumpkin. The first one grown over 1000 lbs. in this contest. Congrats John!
