Double-cropping pumpkins after wheat provides an opportunity to harvest a high-value crop off of land that might otherwise remain uncropped. In northern Indiana, many jack-o- lantern pumpkin cultivars may not mature quickly enough to produce a crop when planted in mid-July. This paper reports yield and fruit size of five cultivars or lines direct-seeded or transplanted into wheat stubble at the Pinney-Purdue Ag Center in Wanatah, Indiana.
