How to grow Potimarrons
My baby pumpkins have set fruit beautifully and I have cut the end off after the 3rd fruit. Had to throw the 1st Fruit away when it had reached the size of an orange but developed black marks and starting to soften within the mark. The leaves are yellow at the base, but balance of plant seems OK. Any ideas what might be happening? Grown in pots, kept damp and topped with untreated (ie no weedkiller used)dry (very dry) lawn mowings as a mulch. Can I stop the other fruit and/or plants folowing suit and how?
