In order to get into the spooky spirt, this page will guide you through everything you need to know about getting Pumpkin Seeds and growing them successfully.
How to Get Pumpkin Starts
What better way to kick start your Halloween preparations than the good ol’ Pumpkin. In order to start growing Pumpkins, you must first get your hands on some seeds.
The Best Place to Purchase Pumpkin Seeds
As shown by the table below, Pumpkin Starts are significantly more expensive when purchasing from Nook’s Cranny which will cost you 280 Bells. For this reason, we highly recommend that you purchase all of your Pumpkin Starts from Leif, who only charges 140 Bells per Pumpkin Start.

Much like flowers, Pumpkins are grown in the same manner and will yield more depending on the amount of times they are watered.For a detailed look at the Pumpkin harvesting rates, check out the table below.

Upon planting your Pumpkin Starts, it will take 4 days for them to fully grow and be able to harvest. After harvesting the Pumpkins, simply leave them planted and water them. From there, it will take two days for them to regrow.
Unfortunately, the Pumpkins will regrow in the same color and much like the initial process, their yield rates will depend on how many times you watered them.
Pumpkin Color Types
Pumpkins can currently grown in 4 different colors and while you will only need your more traditional Orange colored Pumpkins for Spooky DIY Recipes, the other three colors can be used for customization.
Pumpkins can be grown in the following four colors:
At this stage, Pumpkin colors are currently random and there is no way to grow a specific color of your choosing.
