Please note that 'Potkin' produces mostly female flowers that require a pollinator planted nearby to assist fruit set. 'Potkin' planted by itself may not bare any fruit. Suitable pollinator varieties are any pumpkin of the species 'maxima' or 'moschata'. 'Golden Nugget', for exmaple, is useful for this purpose.
